What Do I Do With A Completed Notary Journal?

NNA Hotline Tip Logo

Am I required to turn in my journal once it is full?L.C., California

No. You must keep all your journals in a secure place until your commission expires without obtaining reappointment, you resign or have your commission revoked. At that point, you must turn in all your journals to the county clerk’s office in the county in which your current oath of office is on file.

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
