Oklahoma Becomes 20th State to Adopt Remote Online Notarization
The remote online notarization movement gained incredible momentum in 2018. We saw the number of RON-approved states reach 10, and knew with a lot of hard work – and a little luck – we might see that number double in the new year.
We’re thrilled to share that our prediction came true. Oklahoma recently became the 20th state to adopt RON, and marks the 10th state to pass a RON bill this year.
Senate Bill 915 now heads to the desk of Governor Kevin Stitt for his signature. If signed into law, 83,000 notaries in Oklahoma will have a simpler, safer, more secure way to offer notarizations beginning January 1, 2020.
The Sooner State joins a growing group of states that have approved RON in 2019 - a list that spans the country:
Oklahoma is home to some of the largest oil and gas, agricultural, and aerospace sectors in the country. Five Fortune 500 companies call Oklahoma home, including Devon Energy Corp., Chesapeake Energy Corp., and ONEOK, Inc.
We’re excited to get to work and help Oklahoma usher its notaries into the 21st century.
