What County Should Be Entered In The Venue Section Of A Notary Certificate?

New Hotline Resized 3I am trying to clarify the proper way to notarize documents when it asks for the county. I live in — and my commission is registered in Will County, but I work in Dupage County, and that is primarily where I notarize documents. Would I use Dupage or Will?J.K., Illinois

When completing the venue on a Notary certificate, you enter the state and county where the notarization is performed.

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
