A Notary Public Commission must first be obtained through the Minnesota Secretary of State. After the commission card has been received, register this card with Carlton County in person at the Recorder's Office OR this card may be mailed with the notarized signature(s) on a blank sheet of paper, and the required fee, to the address at the right.
Effective August 1, 2010 Notary Publics are required to file two signatures with their commission. One signature must match the commission card / stamp, the second is how the person will sign as a notary.
Authentication of Notary
To verify that a Notary Public is currently registered in Carlton County, bring the notarized document to the Carlton County Recorder’s Office.
