Executive Order

IL Governor Executive Order 2020-33

Notary Law Update: IL Governor Executive Order 2020-33

State: Illinois

Summary:

Illinois Governor Pritzker extends his prior executive order temporarily allowing Notaries to perform videoconference notarizations during the COVID-19 crisis.

Signed:  April 30, 2020

Effective:  April 30, 2020

Chapter: N/A

Affects:

All Illinois Notaries Public.

Changes:
  1. Allows a signer to transmit the signed document that is the subject of the videoconference notarization by overnight mail in addition to by fax, or electronic means.
  2. Allows a witness to transmit the signed document that is the subject of the videoconference notarization by overnight mail in addition to by fax, or electronic means
Analysis:

Illinois Governor Pritzker reissues and extends Executive Order 2020-14 which temporarily allows Notaries Public to perform videoconference notarizations. Executive Order 2020-33 leaves intact the prior Order but extends its expiration date through May 29, 2020. The only change in Executive Order 2020-33 is the permission for the signer or witness involved in the notarial act to overnight mail the signed document to the Notary instead of fax or electronically transmit the document.
