Okay, what that means is that before you sign you need to be sworn by the notary that you are making a declaration under oath, once the notary takes down your oath then you can sign. So don't sign it yet until you have a notary republic. You can prepare the body of the affidavit but you cannot sign until you have been sworn by the notary.
If you look at that form at the bottom it says "signed and sworn before me_____________, by_____________ etc.... that is the portion the notary has to fill out.
Hope this makes sense.
