In zlien’s article “Can you use electronic signatures on lien waivers”, you mention there are 3 states (Illinois, New York, and Washington) that did not adopt UETA framework. Is e-signature still valid in these states?

That’s a good question. While these states have not adopted the UETA, each state has laws on the books that allow for e-signature. Rather than adopt the uniform provisions of the UETA along with 47 other states, New York, Washington, and Illinois have written their own laws on the subject. Each state’s rules on the subject will vary. But, as a bottom line, e-signature is effective in these states, but will only be effective as set out by their statutory provisions.
