On March 11, the Virginia secretary of state will require every electronic notarial certificate to include: (i) county/city within Virginia where the electronic notary public was physically located at the time the notarization was performed; and (ii) whether the notarization was done in person or by remote notarization. The requirement follows the passage of HB2064, which amends and reenacts certain provisions of the Virginia Code, relating to electronic notary and remote notarization.
