Colorado is one of the first states to have specific statutory and regulatory provisions on electronic notarization actually in effect [C.R.S. 12-55-106.5(1)], not just under consideration or in trial or “pilot program” use. In fact, Colorado has rules in effect that allow e-notarization by simple, secure, and easily available means and, at the same time, preserve the basic transaction safeguards that notarization has historically provided. Colorado’s e-notarization will be rapidly expanding in the coming years as the technology to perform these transactions becomes more readily available.
***Remember that electronic notarization does not mean remote notarization.***
