How do I renew my notary public commission?
The term of a notary public expires after four years. A renewal application is mailed to the notary approximately three months prior to the expiration of his or her commission. Please send this notary renewal form completed in its' entirety, along with a $60.00 fee payable to "Westchester County Clerk" to The Office of the Westchester County Clerk, 110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Attn: Notary Dept., Room 330, White Plains, NY 10601. It is recommended that you include a self addressed, stamped envelope so that a receipt can be returned to you once your renewal is processed by this office.
Once you have received a receipt from this office you may simply add four years to your expiration date and continue to notarize. You do not need to wait to receive your identification card from the Department of State. It may take three or four months from the time you renew with this office for you to receive your identification card from the New York State Department of State.
If you have lost or misplaced your Notary Renewal Form, please contact our Notary Department via phone (914)995-3071 and we can arrange to have an emergency renewal form sent to you.
