Notary Public Service

An Illinois notary public is authorized to perform notarial acts or “notarization” anywhere in the state. Notarial acts include taking an acknowledgement, taking a verification upon oath or affirmation, witnessing or attesting a signature, administering an oath or affirmation, and performing any other act authorized by law.


A notary public must positively identify the person requesting notarization. A notary has positive identification if the person:

  • is personally known to the notary
  • is identified upon the oath or affirmation of a credible witness personally know to the notary
  • is identified on the basis of identification documents


Our General Assistance staff and the Clerk's office are notary certified so we are always available to assist.


A government issued ID 


Note: Documents MUST be signed when you are here with the notary public witnessing or attesting a signature.
