Expiration of Commission

Performing any act as a notary public knowing one's term of office has expired will result in forfeiture of not more than $500 and permanent ineligibility for reappointment (R.C. § 147.11). In the event your commission has expired but you have not performed any act as a notary public, it may be possible to renew your notary without re-testing. Please contact the Court Administrator immediately for further information.
