Which states allow electronic notarization
How long does it usually take?
Alabama: There is no statewide law that provides a method of electronic notarization. However, the Alabama Supreme Court has previously held that [a] notary's signature on a will is not a judicial act. Baldwin v. State, 394 So.2d 938, 942 (Ala. 1982).
Mississippi: No statewide law and thus no established procedure to notarize wills.
South Carolina: There is no statewide statute or rule that provides for electronic notarization of wills.
Tennessee: There is no statewide statute that allows electronic notarization of wills.
The following state laws may provide an electronic procedure for notarizing wills:
Connecticut: There is a statute which allows for electronic notarization of wills. Under this section, [a] signature on a will is not a judicial act. Conn. Gen. Stat. Ann. 4-10(c)(4) (West 1998).
New Jersey: Electronic notarization of wills is prohibited by law and is punishable by imprisonment for a maximum of 180 days on the first offense, for a maximum of one year on the second offense, and for a maximum of six months on the third or subsequent offense. The New Jersey Supreme Court has held that the statutory prohibition on electronic notarization of wills is unclear. State v. Di Gregorio, 50 A.2d 513 (N.J. 1940).
Michigan: The statutory provision is ambiguous and so has not been interpreted by the Michigan Courts, and as of February 1998 there was disagreement among judges whether it also prohibits electronic notarization. The court in the Superior Court of Genesee County, under whose jurisdiction most of Michigan is located, held that the law against electronic notarization of wills does not apply since the Legislature has created a procedure for that purpose. The court in the district court that has jurisdiction of the case in question has not made a ruling since the statute was upheld by the court, while the court in the appellate court that heard the appeal has not yet issued a ruling.
South Dakota: There is no statewide statute that allows electronic notarization of wills.
Idaho: There is a statute which allows electronic notarization of wills. Under this statute, [a] signature on a will is not a judicial act. I'd.

What is an electronic notarization
An electronic notary, also known as an electronic or a certificate notary, acts as an intermediary between you and a notary public. The notary notarizing a document ensures that the legal documents have been properly submitted to a court or other governmental body. By notarizing documents, no one but the notary is able to access them.
What are the advantages of using an electronic notary?
Electronic notaries offer a cost-effective alternative to traveling to a notary public, especially if you are not able to be present when an official records are being created. The cost of traveling to an official notary who does not have an office near your residence will be significantly more. For example, it can cost as much as US 1,250 to travel to a courthouse in Washington, DC for business-related work, while an electric notary in a private location can produce the notarized document for roughly half the cost.
How can I use an electronic notary?
The notary does most of the work. You are expected to be present at the notary's business location at all times. You can also obtain a receipt from the notary to indicate that you signed a notarized document. For simple transactions, a notary can produce the document in as little as a few minutes. Notaries are also more trustworthy, as they do not have the knowledge and skill to obtain the signature of the notary public.
How should I prepare my paper trail?
Most jurisdictions allow the notary public with whom you are working to prepare the original document in the presence of the notary. Some jurisdictions require you to sign the document before the notary can prepare the document. You must indicate in the document that you have permission to sign the document before it can be certified as true and complete by a notary public.
What happens if I do not send in a transaction that I thought the notary was going to deliver?
You should have the original documents and information that prove the validity of the transaction (for example, any bank statements showing deposits that you receive that you don't know were made or the receipts from a sale that would have to be included on the statement if the transaction took place at the time the purchase was made). The notary then provides a copy of the original document to the bank, the recipient of the funds or his insurance carrier (if there is no insurance).
