Notary Public Day is celebrated on November 7th in the United States. It was established by the American Society of Notaries (ASN) in 1975 to recognize notaries for their public service and their contributions to national and international commerce.

The date of November 7th was chosen in recognition of Thomas Fugill, the first notary public appointed in the United States. Fugill was appointed by the Colony of New Haven on October 25, 1639, which is November 7th on the Gregorian calendar now in use.

Notaries public are public officials who are authorized to perform a variety of acts, including notarizing documents, witnessing signatures, and administering oaths. Notarization is the process of verifying the identity of a person signing a document and confirming that they signed the document willingly. Notarized documents are often required for legal transactions, such as buying a home or car, signing a contract, or creating a will.

Today, there are nearly 4.8 million notaries public in the United States. Notaries play an important role in protecting the public from fraud and ensuring the integrity of legal transactions.
