Dear MELISSA F. SHEAD:
Under the Georgia Open Records Act § 50.18.70 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to obtain copies of public records of all ballot images in digital form produced in the general election of November 3, 2020.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $ 15.00.
However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public's understanding of the General Election of November 3, 2020.
This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.
The Georgia Open Records Act requires a response time within three business days. If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than three days, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.
Thank you for considering my request.
