Becoming a Notary Public
A resident wishing to become a Notary Public can visit the Secretary of the State's website
for an application and a Notary handbook. Once the application is processed by the applicant, it is forwarded to the Office of the Secretary of the State in Hartford with a $120.00 fee. When it is received back by the applicant, it is brought into our office where the oath is given and a signature card is signed and put on file with the Town Clerk. There is a statutory $20.00 fee for this service. We keep a card file of all Notaries who are residents of Clinton.
