Arizona Becomes 7th State to Pass Remote Online Notarization Bill in 2019

More than two dozen states have introduced remote online notarization legislation in 2019, driving adoption for technology that makes the notarial act safer, simpler, and more secure.

Today, we’re proud to announce that Arizona Senate Bill 1030 received unanimous support from its state legislature. The bill now heads to Governor Doug Ducey’s desk for his signature.

If signed into law, the bill would bring the benefits of RON to an additional 69,000 notaries beginning June 30, 2020.

SB 1030 is the seventh RON bill to pass state legislatures in 2019, more than all of last year.

Five of those bills – Idaho, Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Utah – bring the benefits of RON to hundreds of thousands of new notaries. Montana also revised the state’s 2015 RON laws to align with the national model.

We’re thrilled with all the success we’ve seen in 2019, and we can’t wait to see which states follow suit.

Still waiting for your state to adopt RON? That doesn’t mean you can’t perform online closings and digital mortgages. Lenders and title agents across the country are closing online without a RON bill in their state.
