Governor Whitmer recently enacted Executive Order 2020-41 permitting electronic signatures and remote notarizations on documents through May 6, 2020, subject to extension depending on conditions. Unless there is a specific state law that requires a physical signature, the order permits electronic signatures and methods for two-way video conferencing permitting a notary to witness a signature remotely.

In response to the order, the Michigan Gaming Control Board announced that it was waiving all notary requirements and accepting electronic signatures on licensing applications, including but not limited to casino license applications, supplier license applications, vendor exemption applications, occupational license applications and millionaire party event applications.
