If you would like contact information for a specific notary public, you may call the Public Records Division in the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Office at (617) 727-2836 and request that information.

A notary public may not refuse to perform a notarial act solely based on the principal's race, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, health, disability or status as a nonclient or noncustomer of the notary public or the notary public’s employer.
