Notaries public in Idaho can now apply to serve their communities as commissioned online notaries. This commission will allow you to complete electronic notarizations completely online through a secure, two-way video call.
How to Obtain Your Online Notarial Commission
Current Idaho notaries can apply to become an online notary public through the Secretary of State’s Office. You can find the application and its requirements here.
As of April 15, 2020, you will need to submit a completed Authorization for Electronic Notarization form to the Secretary of State’s Office. You will also need to select a tamper-evident online notarization solution provider – like Notarize.
The Secretary of State’s Office will send you an authorization certificate once they have approved you to complete online notarizations.

Recently, Notarize announced that it opened the Notarize platform to Idaho notaries if they are employed by a business using Notarize.
All notaries that use the Notarize platform must meet similar minimum compliance standards. Therefore, all notaries must follow the same application process to access our platform.
