Become a Kentucky Notary Public
You do not have to be a Kentucky resident to become a Kentucky notary public. 
You must submit a Kentucky notary application to the Secretary of State. After 
your application has been processed, a certificate of appointment will be sent 
to your county clerk's office. For non-residents, the county clerk's office 
where your application is filed should be the county where you are employed 
or run a business in Kentucky.   The new notary must get a Kentucky notary 
bond, take an oath of office, file and record their commission within thirty 
days of receiving their notary that their certificate of appointment has been 
received by the county clerk's office.  There is a $10.00 Kentucky notary 
application fee.  Contact information for the notary division is below.
