Notary Public Commissions
The County Clerk is responsible for the local processing of notary public commissions. Applicants must first apply with the Missouri Secretary of State’s Commissions Division and obtain a surety bond when so instructed. The bond then must be remitted to and verified by the Clerk in order for the applicant to receive his/her oath and commission.
Notary Public Information: We have notary handbooks that you may pick up in our office. In the handbook are applications that you will need to fill out and send to the Missouri Secretary of State’s office. There is an computer based or written notary training that must be completed. The Secretary of State mails your notary commission to the County Clerk’s Office. You must bring your $10,000 bond and $3.00 fee to the County Clerk’s Office to sign your oath and receive your commission.
