From: Andrew Drechsler

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Georgia Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any raw data that the House Committee on Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment has used or will use as part of the decennial redistricting process following the 2020 Census to draw draft and/or final district maps for the Georgia House of Representatives, Georgia State Senate, and U.S. Congressional districts, which could include any of the following:

-Primary, general, and special election results for any elections state legislative, US congressional, statewide candidate or ballot measure between 2011-2020
-Primary, general, and special election precinct boundaries for any elections between 2011-2020
-Voter registration and turnout data between 2011-2020
-Incarcerated population reallocation data
-Candidate and incumbent address data
-Population projections
-Voter file data

As well as any other data used by the Georgia General Assembly in preparing draft or final maps.

In addition to the raw data, which means the original data collected before it has been processed, transformed, or otherwise altered, I hereby request any documentation describing how the raw data was collected and processed for use in map drawing, as well as any internal communication among elected officials and/or government employees about data preparation, management, cleaning, formatting, or otherwise changing or manipulating the data, or about map drawing.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Andrew Drechsler

From: Georgia House of Representatives
