§951. Seal; authority to administer oaths

A notary public may keep a seal of office, engraved with the notary public's name exactly as it appears on the notary public's commission, and the words "Notary Public" and "Maine" or its abbreviation "Me.," with the arms of state or such other device as the notary public chooses. When a notary public who has obtained a seal of office resigns, or the notary public's commission is revoked or expires, the notary public or heirs shall destroy the official seal or send it to the Secretary of State for destruction. When authorized by the laws of this State or of any other state or country to do any official act, the notary public may administer any oath necessary to the completion or validity of the act.
