To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Missouri Sunshine Law and the Missouri Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:
A copy of the user and technical documentation for all of the hardware and components that were required to operate the iPad Electronic Poll Books deployed in the 50 precincts during the August primary election.
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.
As the Custodian of Records for the St. Louis County Election Board, your request for information was forwarded to me. In order to provide you with the correct information, could you contact me to discuss your request in greater detail? Thanks.
St. Louis County Election Board

In response to your Sunshine Request, attached please find the following items: 2016 RFP for E Poll Pads and Election Management System; KWOWINK's proposal (successful bidder); and the training manual. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanks so much for speaking with me yesterday and for these records. The RFP suggests that the vendor was also supposed to provide "Technical Documentation" for the system as well (p 27. 3:5). Is that documentation available as well?
Again, thank you for your time,
KNOWINK addressed software and technical design in Section 4 of its proposal. We did not receive additional information from them. As may know, the selection process also involved an in-depth interview with each vendor. If information was missing from a proposal, many times follow up questions were asked during the interview. The director of the County's IT department was a member of the committee and questioned KNOWINK on various technical issues during the interview. The committee scored KNOWINK the highest and recommended that they be awarded the contract. Thanks.
Thanks so much for your help with this request! I really appreciate it.
