Notary Public


***Notary Renewal Changes***

Recent amendments to the New York Executive Law, 2023 Sess. Law News of N.Y. Ch. 188 (S. 7561) have changed the renewal process for notaries public. Whereas previously notaries public renewed their commissions through the County Clerk, on and after June 30, 2023 notaries now seeking renewal will do so through the Department of State.

Effective June 30, 2023, this law has taken effect and therefore you can no longer renew through the Ontario County Clerk’s Office. 

To renew You will now follow the process outlined by the State of New York:

  1. Access to online system at Business Express NY; then click on ‘Search Applications’ and search for ‘Notary’.
  2. Sign in or create a account.
  3. Find your notary record.
  4. Go to ‘My Dashboard’ to start your renewal. You will be able to log in to your account and  view the status of your application.
