Q: How can I become a Notary Public?

A: Applications are available at the Legislative Delegation Office. Once the application form is completed, have it notarized and return it to the Delegation Office. Attach a check for $25, made payable to the Secretary of State. Endorsement of a Notary application requires the signatures of delegation members. The Delegation Office obtains these signatures and then forwards the application to the Secretary of State´s office. When the Notary commission is returned to the applicant, the Clerk of Court must record it within 15 days. There is a recording fee.

Q: If I am having problems obtaining service from a local agency, how can your office help?

A: The Delegation Office performs a variety of research and investigative tasks for legislators and constituents. Work is not limited to state agencies and may include contact with private organizations and federal and local government agencies.

History:

Delegation meetings:

The delegation meets at the call of the Chair in Georgetown County Council's Chambers in the historic Georgetown County Courthouse. Meetings are open to the public. For meeting times, call the Delegation Office.
