From: Department of Transportation

Dear Mr. Gregg
This responds to your request dated February 13, 2019 to the Delaware Department of Transportation ("DelDOT") pursuant to the Delaware Freedom of Information Act, 29 Del. C. §§10001-10007 ("FOIA").

FOIA provides for access to public records for citizens of the state of Delaware. Accordingly, because you do not appear to be a Delaware citizen, you do not have a guaranteed right under FOIA to access State of Delaware public records. See Del. Op. Att'y Gen. 16-IB20 (2016) (finding that the denial of a FOIA request by a non-Delaware citizens was not a violation of FOIA because the word "'citizen,' as used in Section 10003(a), refers to citizens of the State of Delaware."). As the right to access documents pursuant FOIA is not guaranteed for non-Delaware citizens, DelDOT is denying your request.

Thank you,
Kristin

I am a citizen of Delaware. What makes you think I'm not? I suggest you check voter registration or whatever you need to check on your end.

Dear Mr. Gregg,
Due to the method you chose to file your FOIA request (using muckrock.com) the only identifying information I have from you is your name which is not enough to determine if you are or are not a citizen of Delaware. As you have stated that you are, please provide your residential address so we may process your request.
Thank you,
Kristin

I'll send you my private address off of muckrock for confirmation. It can be found in the voter registry database, but I'd rather not put my home address on muckrock.
