Can I Replace My Current Notary Journal If It Is Damaged?

NNA Hotline Tip Logo

I spilled water on my journal and need to know what to do. I dried it, and you can read the information. Can I purchase another and continue with the new one instead?M.V., Texas

Yes, you can start using a new journal. You are required to keep the damaged journal in a safe and secure manner. If there are any unused pages in the damaged journal, we recommend writing a note after the last entry stating that you began a new journal after the date of the last entry.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
