Public Records Request for Absentee Envelopes From Your BOE

When you attend your local Board of Elections meetings when they are opening and scanning absentee ballots, submit a Public Records Request (form Letter below) requesting copies of the absentee ballot containers. You need to fill in YOUR information. Suggest you hand deliver it. Ask for a receipt of delivery. (It's not going to make you popular with the BOE!)
