Public Record Requests

Government In The Sunshine

The Supervisor of Elections office, a constitutional office of the City of Jacksonville, supports the Florida “Government in the Sunshine” laws, designed to provide transparency and openness in government operations. “It is the policy of this state that all state, county, and municipal records are open for personal inspection and copying by any person. Providing access to public records is a duty of each agency” [(F.S. 119.01(1)

The Florida law on “Public Records” may be found in its entirety here: Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes.

Requesting records/information

A request may be made by e-mail, mail, in person, or by calling (904) 255-8683. Inspection of records may take place during normal business hours. Records will be made available as quickly as is practical after a request is made. SOE staff will provide non-exempt voter information in response to a phone call or email.

A requester may remain anonymous when asking for public records. The request does not have to not be in writing and the reason for asking does not have to be stated.

Please help us be responsive to your request by asking for documents by title or with sufficient specificity so that we are able to correctly identify and locate the requested records.
