Registering Notary Commission

To become a commissioned Notary Public for South Carolina, you must be a registered voter in the county in which you live.

If you are a registered voter, you can obtain the Notary Public application from the Legislative Delegation Office located at 301 University Ridge, Suite 2400, Greenville South Carolina 29601 or you may call 864.467.7112 to have an application mailed directly to you. You can also download the application from the Greenville County Government website.

After you receive your application, you will need to complete the form and have a Notary Public witness your signature before returning the application to the Legislative Delegation Office at County Square. The application fee for a Notary Public Commission is twenty-five dollars ($25.00).

Upon submission and payment of the required fee, your application will be sent to the Secretary of State’s office for processing and approval. If you are approved as a Notary Public, you will need to present a $5.00 filing fee along with your driver’s license to the Accounting Department at the Clerk of Court’s Office located on the second floor at the Greenville County Courthouse. Once the fee and ID have been received and approved, you will register your commission with the Civil Records Department (Suite 224) also located on the second floor at the Greenville County Courthouse. The physical address for the Clerk of Court’s office is 305 East North Street in downtown Greenville.

Acceptable forms of payment include cash, money order, cashier check, or credit/debit card with a valid pictured ID.
