Section 91 of the Kentucky Constitution requires the Secretary of State to attest all official acts of the Governor. This is accomplished by impressing the official documents with the seal of the Commonwealth. The Secretary of State is charged with keeping this seal pursuant to KRS 14.030. Presently, the Secretary of State maintains and uses a cast-iron seal machine.
Because the purpose of the seal is to attest official acts only, it may not be used for commercial purposes.
