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: Once you have completed the notary test, the Secretary of State will mail your notary commission to the County Clerk’s Office. We encourage you to call first to see if your document has arrived. If it has, you will need to bring a $10,000 bond and $3.00 fee (cash or check) to the County Clerk’s Office to sign your oath and receive your commission. The above link will take you to the Secretary of State’s website for more notary information.
*We do not notarize documents for the public.
