If a Notary’s 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 Notary’s 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 Notary’s Seal would have to correspond exactly to the way the name is signed and recorded with the Office of the Secretary of State.
