Nevada notaries interested in conducting online notarizations must first obtain an exemplar. This exemplar must be submitted as part of your online notarization application to the Secretary of State’s office.
Here's how you can obtain a Nevada Electronic Notary exemplar.
What is an electronic notary exemplar?
The signature and seal Nevada notaries will use to conduct online notarizations are collectively referred to as the "exemplar."
Where can I get an electronic notary exemplar?
To obtain an exemplar, Nevada notaries must select an approved Electronic Notary Solution Provider. From there, the provider will need to supply the notary with a copy of their wet signature (as it appears on the notary's traditional notary application) and an electronic seal.
The notary must have their exemplar combined in one PDF file to complete their electronic notary registration with the Secretary of State's office.
