All election results for Democratic County Committee

Union County did not have the information requested.

Dear Union 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.

Thank you.

Jeff Epstein

Re:         Open Public Records Act (OPRA) Request(s) Acknowledgment

 

This office received your OPRA request for Democratic County Committee
election results on June 18, 2018. OPRA requires that a response be
provided within 7 business days, beginning the first business day after
receipt of the request. We will have a response prepared by June 27,
2018. Records are typically provided to requestors in electronic format,
for which there is usually no cost (see below for additional information).
However, the County will advise you of the page count and cost, if you
wish to buy paper copies. You may also review documents at no cost in the
Clerk of the Board’s Office; if you choose this option, please call or
email ahead to arrange a mutually convenient appointment.

                

Pursuant to Ordinance 710-2010, adopted on October 14, 2010, the following
fee schedule applies for photocopies: pages 1-10: no charge; page 11 and
each page thereafter: $.05 per page for documents that are letter-sized or
smaller, and $.07 per page for documents that are legal-sized or
larger. There shall be a limit of 30 pages forwarded via facsimile to any
requestor, per request. The fee schedule is as follows: pages 1-10: no
charge; pages 11-30: $.05 per page for letter-sized documents, and $.07
per page for legal-sized documents.

                                  

If you wish to have records mailed or faxed to you and there is a cost for
same, please send your payment to the following address:

 

Office of the Clerk of the Board

Union County Administration Building – 6^th Floor     

10 Elizabethtown Plaza

Elizabeth, NJ 07207

                      

Please do not send cash; kindly make a check or money order payable to the
County of Union. We will provide the documents upon receipt of payment. 

             

OPRA ordinarily grants immediate access to budgets, bills, vouchers,
contracts (including collective negotiations agreements and individual
employment contracts), and public employee salary and overtime
information. While the County makes every effort to provide immediate
access to such documents, processing may take longer depending on the
amount of records requested, medium requested, if redaction is required or
documents are in storage, or if the request requires extensive work to
complete. The same is true for requests for non-immediate access
documents. When additional time is needed to process a request, the County
provides requestors with written updates accordingly.

             

In accordance with OPRA, requests that require extensive work to complete
may be subject to a special service charge in addition to applicable copy
fees and/or archive fees ($2/box). Special service fees are determined on
a case-by-case basis; you will be informed of same before incurring the
charge. Please be advised that work on such requests will not begin until
receipt of the special service charge and/or archive fees.

             

If no records are available, or the record(s) are exempt in accordance
with OPRA, the County will advise accordingly.

 

If your OPRA request is denied, you have a right to appeal the decision.
You may file your appeal with the New Jersey Government Records Council
(GRC) or the New Jersey Superior Court, as provided by N.J.S.A. 47:1A-6
and 7. For additional information on the appeal process, please visit:

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation and patience while
we work to fulfill your request. If you have any questions, please call
this office at (908) 527-4178 or (908) 527-4157.

Dear Mr. Epstein,

 

I am writing to obtain clarification of your June 18, 2018, OPRA request
stating “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…”

 

Please be advised there was no election for Democratic County Committee
members on June 5, 2018. The Democratic and Republican County Committees
hold elections every other year – the Democratic County Committee’s
election was last year, whereas the Republican County Committee’s election
was this year. Please also note that the municipalities certify the
results of said elections.

 

Please clarify if you seek the Democratic County Committee election
results from last year. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
