Dear Ocean County,
This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I certify under penalty of perjury that I have not been convicted of a crime anywhere in the United States.
This request is in regards to the primary held on June 5th 2018,
for all election districts and/or wards in the county,
for all candidates for Democratic county committee,
both male and female,
both those on the ballot and write-ins.
For each of these candidates, please provide:
1. Municipality name,
2. Election district and/or ward,
3. Candidate name,
4. vote count, and
5. an indication of whether the candidate was a write-in or listed on the ballot.
Please provide this information in its original electronic format.
If the original electronic format does not allow its text to be easily selected and manipulated, then please provide it in a secondary format that satisfies this condition. An example alternate format is a tab-delimited text file, or spreadsheet, where each of the above five items are in its own column, with one candidate per line.
Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Mr. Epstein - By way of this email your request is being forwarded to the Office of the Ocean County Clerk. The County Clerk maintains their own files and has their own Custodian of Records.
Clerk of the Board of Chosen Freeholders
Dear Vasil , Betty,
Thank you for forwarding my request. I will update our system to send future Ocean County requests to [email address].

Dear Colabella , Scott,
Thank you for the link.
Missing from that information, however, is the names of write in candidates (Democrat only), in districts/wards where at least one vote was received.
How do I obtain those names?

Dear Colabella , Scott,
I understand now. Thank you for the information and walking me through that.
Letting you know that the information on this page
although understandable, is very difficult to manage. You must click literally hundreds of times just to see it, and then when you select it, it is all mangled.
At the moment I am closing this request, with the caveat that I may request that the information in this document be sent in a different format (such as it exists on the backend/in the database).
