A notary who changes their name or address should notify the appointing 
clerk in writing within thirty days of the change and provide the old and 
new names and new signature.  A Georgia notary public must use a notary seal 
and signature to complete each notary act.  A Notary is permitted to, and 
should refuse to witness a signature if there is any question as to the 
identity of the signer, the sanity of the signer, or the voluntariness of 
the signature. A Notary should base the identity of the signer on personal 
knowledge or satisfactory evidence. A notary may not notarize a document 
that they acted as a witness in as that constitutes being party to the 
document.  A non-state resident may apply for a notary commission within 
the county that they have a place of business or employment in within the
