Election time excitement got you feeling a little more patriotic than usual? Looking for a way to help but not sure you have the time? Well, MuckRock is looking for a few good people to do a big service requiring little effort: serve as our resident proxies.
A few states have put up barriers at their borders, limiting required disclosure and response to requests to only residents. One more thing added to the regular rigamarole of requesting public records, it’s huge block to comparative studies and useful, outside accountability.
This is where you come in.
We’re looking for volunteers in the ten states that can whip out their residency requirements whenever they get the chance:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
As a MuckRock proxy requester, you’ll serve as the in-state request representative, allowing requests to be submitted in your name and enabling others to continue to demand accountability. In exchange, you’ll get your own Professional MuckRock account - 20 requests a month and all that comes with them - and the gratitude of the transparency community.
