A notary public is someone who acts as a witness to the identity of a person who needs to get an official document signed. Notary publics must be commissioned or licensed in their county of residence, but they have statewide jurisdiction so they can notarize within any county in their state.
There are 2 kinds of Kentucky Notary Publics:
- Kentucky Notary Public State at Large: a notary public who is appointed to perform tasks within the state of Kentucky, but the documents may be sent to other states for recording.
- Kentucky Notary Public Special Commission: a notary public who is appointed to perform tasks inside or outside the state of Kentucky covering documents to be recorded in Kentucky.
