Hotline Tip: How Do You Void A Notarization When There Is An Error?

NNA Hotline Tips For NotariesIf I have made an error in my journal and it has already been signed, how can I void it? - B.L.,Westminster, CA

To correct an error in your journal, the NNA recommends that you draw a line through the mistake, initial it, and then make the correction. To void a notarization that was not completed, simply line through the journal entry, initial it, and make a notation explaining the reason the notarization was cancelled.

The NNA does not recommend using correction fluid to fix errors in a journal, as it could raise suspicions of dishonesty or ethical breaches if the notarization is ever questioned or challenged.
