Electronic Notarization is Here!
Due to legislative changes, the Butler County Recorder's Office can now accept Electronic Notarizations and Online Notarizations.  This includes documents notarized in Ohio and other states as well.

We also have a "papering out" provision in Ohio.  If a document is electronically notarized,  you can print the paper document out and attach an Authenticator Certificate.  With this certificate attached to the printed out document, we will accept it for recording over the counter or in the mail.  The $8.00 per page fee does apply to this certificate, as well as the Ohio Standardization Guidelines.
