So excited! I just completed the first step in becoming an e-notary in the state of Virginia. I applied for and purchased my digital certificate/signature that conforms to X.509 digital certificate standards and issued and managed by a trusted root Certificate Authority as allowed by the Commonwealth. Step 2 - apply to become an electronic notary. https://commonwealth.virginia.gov/official-documents/notary-commissions/enotary/
