To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Ohio Open Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

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.

Good Afternoon,
Please provide me a name and contact number of an individual from your organization that I may speak with regarding this request. I can be reached at 216-443-6435. Thank you.

From: Joe Andre

I would prefer to stick to email. Do you need clarification on the request? My initial request was for prior addresses and precinct assignments for any voters falling in the window of January 1, 2016 to September 14, 2021. I requested the data to include their Ohio SOS voter ID number (`STATE_ID`), voter status, and vote history.

I would accept backups of voter master files (excluding protected identifiers), DIMS transaction file extracts, or any other format that meets my stated request.
If I can clarify this in any way, or if there are other issues to discuss, please let me know.

Good Morning,

Please follow this link to access the information for 2021. This is our current voter registration base and can be downloaded for the entire county and will provide you with most of the information that you are requesting.
Registered Voter Lists (Data Exports) - Cuyahoga County Board of Elections<>
Registered Voter Lists (Data Exports) Registered Voter Lists are available for export by districts. Click on a category link below to download the list of registered voters by that district.

We are still researching other parts of your request to determine if such document(s) exist, without the need to "customize" a report.

From: Joe Andre


I appreciate the link but that data falls outside of the stated time frame and only provides voters by their currently assigned address / precinct, not prior addresses / precinct assignments to match the vote history. That information is critical. It should be extractable from any election master voter files or through changes in the transaction tables of the SQL underlying DIMS.
Has any progress been made on my request?

Joe Andre
