PA 2019 Election Complaints - Allegheny

Adrien Salzberg filed this request with the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office of Allegheny County, PA.

It is a clone of this request.



From: Adrien Salzberg

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Pennsylvania Right to Know Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all records from January 1, 2019, to the date this request is processed, concerning election complaints forwarded to the county from the Pennsylvania Department of State. A spreadsheet obtained via a previous request to the department showed that in 2019, 10 election complaints were submitted to Allegheny County, including 1 instance each of bribery/coercion and poll worker violations, and 8 other complaints. Responsive documents would include investigations into these complaints and the findings of the district attorney.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
