Secretary of State Office

Each state has their own secretary of state office. Generally, the duties of the office include the maintenance of state records and preservation of the state seal, but as state government expanded so did the responsibilities of the Secretary of State.

Additional duties handled by the SOS office includes chartering of new business, regulation of the securities industry, oversight of state elections, commissioning of notaries public, registration of trademarks and licensing of vehicle dealerships.
