No. All documents must be signed in the Office of the County Registrar in front of the Registrar or deputy clerk.
Please check that the date of commission and your county of residence is correct. The date of commission should be indicated on the bond. If the space on the bond is blank where the beginning date of the commission should be, please fill in the proper beginning date. If the date or county of residence is incorrect, the applicant will need to contact the insurance company to obtain a rider to correct the Surety Bond.
