Alabama – Need for Notary Public Reform?

Alabama’s own Secretary of State says Alabama’s laws are probably the worst in the country when it comes to Notaries Public.

Secretary of State Nancy Worley was attending the convention of the National Notary Association this weekend in Las Vegas, as reported in an article published in the Ft. Wayne, Indiana News Sentinel. She told the reporter she was at the convention to raise the level of notarial practices in her home state.

“Alabama probably has the worst notary laws in the country,” Worley said. “And almost anybody can sign up to become a notary. It’s always dangerous when people have a title and don’t know what to do with it.”
