Dear Mr. Joyce:
The New York State Board of Elections has received your request for access to public documents, more specifically, "...any and all documents related to decisions to remove voters from the 2018 voter rolls produced on or after January 1, 2018."
We have conducted a diligent search of our records and found none that would be responsive to your request. County Boards of Elections are the only entity allowed to add, change, cancel or remove voter registration records pursuant to Election Law Section 5-614(4). Any supporting documents that a County Board relied on would be in their custody.
If you have additional questions, please let us know.
