Pem Guerry, executive vice president of SIGNiX, recently wrote an article for Law Technology Today about legislative updates for electronic and remote notarization. His article provides a detailed list of several states that are enacting laws to support this technology and explains how e-notarization came about. In the article, he said:

“It all started in 2011 when the state of Virginia introduced the Electronic Notaries Act. This law made e-notarizations and remote, or online, notarizations possible by enabling signers from anywhere in the world to appear live before a commissioned notary public on a screen—via Skype, Facetime, or another audio-video teleconference option—and get a document notarized.”
