Notary Public Services

Notary SealNotary Public Services are available with the Building Department, Town Clerk, Town Administrator and Senior Center Offices during regular business hours for Grafton residents only. Please call or email prior to coming in to make an appointment and to ensure that we are able to notarize the documents you have. Please refer to the Notary Guidelines for Notary Services with the Town of Grafton (PDF).

Local banks and the Grafton Public Library also have notaries available.

The individual who is having their signature notarized must have proper identification.

All documents to be notarized have to be signed in the presence of the notary public and must be completed in full before notarization. Please make sure to have all forms with you, not just the page requiring notarization.
