Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

5 ILCS 312/6A-105

    (5 ILCS 312/6A-105)
    Sec. 6A-105. Electronic certificate of notarial acts.
    (a) An electronic notarial certificate must be evidenced by an electronic notarial certificate signed and dated by the electronic notary public. The electronic notarial certificate must include identification of the jurisdiction in which the electronic notarial act is performed and the electronic seal of the electronic notary public.
    (b) An electronic notarial certificate of an electronic notarial act is sufficient if it meets the requirements of subsection (a) and it:
        (1) is in the short form set forth in 6-105;
        (2) is in a form otherwise prescribed by the law of
this State; or
        (3) sets forth the actions of the electronic notary
public and those are sufficient to meet the requirements of the designated electronic notarial act.
    (c) At the time of an electronic notarial act, an electronic notary public shall electronically sign every electronic notarial certificate and electronically affix the electronic seal clearly and legibly, so that it is capable of photographic reproduction. The illegibility of any of the information required under this Section does not affect the validity of a transaction.
