To become a Notary Public in Minnesota, renew your notary commission, or change your name or address on your commission, you must be approved by the Minnesota Secretary of State. Once you have been approved, you must record your commission in your county of residence. The fee for recording your commission at the county is $20.00.

A Notary Commission card from the Office of the Secretary of State or the downloaded notary commission certificate.

Two of your signatures, notarized by another notary, on a separate white sheet of paper.

These two signatures may or may not be the same.
