Open Government and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)


The District of Columbia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), codified at D.C. Official Code §§ 2-531-539, provides that any person has the right to request access to records. All public bodies of the District government, including the Board of Elections, are required to disclose public records, except for those records or portions of records that are protected from disclosure by the exemptions found at DC Code § 2-534.

The Board of Elections is committed to transparency and openness. As is the case with other District government agencies, the Board is required to make certain records available online to the public if those records exist. In cases where those records exist but are not yet available online, we are working to provide them as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about the information contained on this page, or if there is any information you would like to see included herein, please contact the Board’s Office of the General Counsel at [email protected].
