Do I Need To Cross Out Extra Wording On Notary Certificates?

New Hotline Resized 3Do I need to cross out any unnecessary pronouns listed in California Notary acknowledgment certificates?  A.W., California

No, the pronouns (“he/she/they”) do not need to be crossed out. In fact, they are required to be included in the certificate wording.   

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
