Elections and Government Services Administrative Rules of Montana Business Services Notary and Certification Records and Information Management


On October 1, 2015, Senate Bill 306, which revises Montana’s notary laws, took effect. Some of the most important changes to the notary laws are summarized here.┬áIn conjunction with the new laws, the Secretary of State is proposing the adoption and revision of several administrative rules.

As a result of the new laws, you will see some changes on our website.  Our on-line training and notary handbook are being updated.  The application forms for becoming a notary and renewing a notary commission have been combined into one application form. This application form must be used beginning September 28, 2015. The form for updating notary information has also been changed. And, our website now contains a link to the new Montana Notary Public Examination, which, as of October 1, 2015, all new notary applicants (except those already commissioned as a Montana Notary Public) must pass in order to be commissioned as a Notary Public for the State of Montana.
