Signature By Mark
In some cases, someone will be unable to sign their name due to being illiterate or disabled. In these cases, they can do a signature by mark and put an “X” or other mark for their signature in both the document and notarial journal. The notary then must indicate near the mark that it is the mark of that individual both on the document and in their notary journal (example: X “mark of John Doe”). In some cases, two impartial witnesses may be required for a signature by mark. The notary should record the witness names and signatures in the notarial journal.
