If a Notaryï¿½s Public Seal is lost or stolen, report the loss or theft immediately to the Office of the Secretary of State so that a notation can be made on the Notaryï¿½s Public records.
There are two options available to a Notary whose seal has been lost or stolen:
In addition to whatever option is taken, the Notary may also wish to change the name on their Notary Commission and Seal. (Example: Elizabeth B. Jackson could be changed to Elizabeth Jackson or E.B. Jackson or Liz B. Jackson). The new impression of the Notaryï¿½s Seal would have to correspond exactly to the way the name is signed and recorded with the Office of the Secretary of State.
