If a document is electronically notarized is it accepted in another state?

Just like traditional paper based notarial acts where you can get a document notarized in one state, and then take it to another state where it is recognized as a legally notarized document, the same rule applies to electronically notarized documents.

Most states that allow their commissioned notaries to perform e-notarizations require physical presence of all parties during an electronic notarial act, and the other states recognize that, but the same may not apply to documents that are remotely notarized.

It is usually best practice to check with the state to see what they will, and will not accept.  Please also read the other blogs about electronic and remote notarizations.
