Douglas County received your request dated April 24, 2019. I will be happy to assist you, but require additional information in order to process your request. You stated that you are seeking "any and all documents, emails, memorandum, and reports from Nov. 6-8 concerning the midterm elections and problems at Douglas County voting precincts." The request as stated is very broad and would require significant time and expense to complete, as encompasses a large number of documents that would require identification and review for exempt material. If you can clarify search parameters so that we can identify the specific records you are seeking, we will proceed according to your wishes. In the original format, we anticipate that the cost to process your request could exceed $500.00. If you can identify particular records or categories of documents so that we can search for records relevant to your request, we will work to locate responsive material and communicate any cost estimates related to processing your request. Thanks!

Hello Aubrey,

I can definitely narrow down my request! I'm fine with just getting emails from Nov. 6-8 concerning the midterm elections and problems at Douglas County voting precincts. I would like my documents to be sent in a digital format, especially if that helps in lowering the cost.

Let me know if you need further clarification.

Thanks,
Mackenzie Farkus

Thank you for your clarification! I will coordinate with Voter Registration to see what records may be responsive; to be sure I understand and I am asking for the correct materials, do you want any email concerning the midterm elections, and emails related to problems with the voting precincts, or do you want any emails that are related to problems with the voting precincts? I want to make sure I put in the correct search parameters in our email archiving system. Thanks!

Hello Aubrey,

I am working to process your request, but am hoping that you can help me by identifying email address and accounts to be searched to identify documents responsive to your request. If you can also identify key words it will help produce results that are relevant to your request. I have searched records using parameters intended to assist, but there were an incredible number of unresponsive documents which would take significant time and cost to review, and which may not contain records relevant to your search. If you can provide the accounts and key words you would like searched, I will work to process your request expeditiously. Thanks.
