Contact the Minnesota Secretary of State Office
for a Notary Application. Once the Notary Application is approved and the Commission Certificate is received from the Secretary of State, you must file your commission certificate for it to become effective. This is done at the Recorder's Office of the county in which you reside. Signature and identification are required; therefore you will need to file your commission in person. The fee is $20. For additional Notary Public Information, please visit the Secretary of State
