Colorado and Oregon Become Latest States to Adopt Online Notarization

When Notarize opened its doors in 2015, only Virginia allowed its notaries to connect with signers online. Today, we're excited to share the news that Colorado and Oregon have become the 26th and 27th states, respectively, to sign remote online notarization legislation into law.
 
Combined, these states will allow 122,000 additional notaries to access technology that will help them serve signers in a safer and more secure way.
 
The addition of Colorado and Oregon increases the number of states to pass RON legislation in 2020 to five – following Wisconsin, Alaska, and Louisiana, which passed earlier this month.
