Township Officials May Take Oath of Office Virtually

In Pennsylvania, notaries are authorized to perform remote online notarization, with the signer personally and physically appearing before the notary via AV technology. If newly elected or re-elected township officials are having difficulty taking the oath of office in person, they may contact notaries and ask about remote online notarization.  

As a reminder, all newly elected and re-elected township supervisors and other elected township officials must take an oath of office. The oath must be administered by a judge, district magistrate, or notary and filed with the township secretary.
