  • If the requestor chooses not to give their contact information, staff will assign a file number.  The requestor is given their file number and advised to follow up in order to make arrangements to pick up the requested information when the order has been processed.  The requester is responsible for following up to ensure their request is received.
  • A public records request received via postal mail will be time and date stamped and the envelope will be retained.  Faxed requests will be time and date stamped upon receipt.  E-mailed requests will receive a response from the Supervisor of Elections indicating receipt of the request.  If payment is not received with the request, staff will contact the requestor and request payment.  The public records request will not be processed until payment is received.
  • EXEMPTIONS: Florida Statutes have established that certain information is exempt from public record.  When necessary, exempt information will be redacted in order to process a request.  A document with exempt information will be copied, the exempt information blacked out and then a copy of the document with the redaction will be provided to the requester.  The original record will be re-filed. Surveillance videos are exempt from public disclosure under F.S. 119.071(3)(a)1 and also under all the CISA exemptions. Link to the Government in the Sunshine Manual
