In a notable development for remote online notarization (RON), New Hampshire recently became the 38th state in the United States to pass RON legislation. On August 10, Governor Chris Sununu signed Senate Bill 134 into law, bringing RON to the state. The law is set to be effective on February 6, 2022.
Notarize commends Governor Sununu and the General Court of New Hampshire for their efforts in introducing RON, making it accessible to the thousands of commissioned notaries throughout the state. This achievement follows the passage of RON laws in New Jersey (State 36) and Illinois (State 37). With the addition of New Hampshire, a total of nine states have passed RON laws in 2021 alone.
Notarize emphasizes that RON is a crucial pathway to bring notarization online, enhancing traditional in-person notarization with fraud prevention measures tailored to the digital world. This approach provides a compliant, safe, and secure transaction, offering notaries the tools to modernize business transactions and give consumers greater access to important life events.
Having worked with lawmakers and regulators across the country, Notarize expresses pride in being a readily available and trusted resource to government partners. The company looks forward to continuing its work to expand RON to all 50 states. For additional inquiries or to contact Notarize Public Affairs, you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
