|Texas notary "E.J." received her first notary commission in 2016. She is now making national headlines because of a notary error.|
Sadly, Texas notary laws do NOT require training. They do NOT require testing. So, many notaries don't see it as a priority.
I have a great deal of empathy for E.J. It's tragic. She'll be pestered by the media. Her life will basically turn into a living h3ll.
The SOS in Texas has done an amazing job of providing educational materials. They have been building up their offerings of information for the last 2-3 years.
I have seen the same mistake 20+ times over the years made by notaries. When the misinformed teach the uninformed, this is the result.
