One of the biggest challenges to the widespread use of electronic notarizations is the slow pace of government agencies adopting digital recordkeeping technologies.But that may soon change as the federal goverment speeds up its plan to use e-records to replace the mountains of papers. The Obama Administration recently issued a memo directing federal agencies to start using electronic technologies to replace paper options. They must submit a plan outlining there efforts to adopt digital recordkeeping technologies. As more agencies embrace electronic recording and documents, the closer we are to electronic notarizations.
