Bryce Hall writes:

I provide mobile notary services for an elderly population in Colonial Beach, VA. Some signers are still living at home by themselves or with other family members. Will I be able to accept expired ID from them as well? Not everyone is living in an assisted living facility or nursing home. Thank you.
