A Notary in North Carolina is an appointed official for the State. Notaries play a vital role in protecting the public against fraud and forgery. This is accomplished by requiring the personal appearance and verification of the identity of individuals signing documentation or performing other actions before the Notary. Notarization also lends an air of solemnity to transactions when documents are being signed, which in turn lends weight to the seriousness of the event taking place before the Notary.
