A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by state government – typically by the Secretary of State – to serve the public as an impartial witness to administer oaths, witness the signing of documents, and deter fraud by verifying the identify of a person signing important documents. These official acts are called notarizations, or notarial acts.
