Oklahoma has joined the growing list of states adopting remote online notarization (RON) legislation, marking the 20th state to embrace this modernization of notarial practices. Senate Bill 915, which recently gained approval, is awaiting Governor Kevin Stitt's signature. If signed into law, approximately 83,000 notaries in Oklahoma will be equipped with a simpler, safer, and more secure way to conduct notarizations starting January 1, 2020.
This development reflects the momentum behind the RON movement in 2019, with Oklahoma becoming the 10th state to pass RON legislation this year. The nationwide acceptance of RON is transforming traditional notarial processes, offering greater convenience and efficiency for businesses and the public alike.
