On August 22, 2022, Oklahoma Liberty and Integrity Group sent an Open Records Request to all 77 County Election Boards in Oklahoma, the text of which is as follows:
‘Pursuant to our state’s freedom of information law, please remit the Cast Vote Records for ‘stated’ County from the 2020 General Election. These records should include the following fields as a minimum.
Ballot Type ID
Request from:‘Citizen Who Wishes to Remain Anonymous’
By September 6th we were receiving partial fulfillment of this request by several counties. These included Garvin, Grady, Bryan, Lincoln, Alfalfa, Blaine, Muskogee, Carter, Woodward, Tulsa, Oklahoma, Mayes, Wagoner, Rogers, Murray, Osage, Canadian, Le Flore, Pontotoc, Washington.
Beginning on September 20, we started receiving refusal letters that appeared to be copy/pasted from a form letter from the State Election Board.
We received these letters from counties that had previously partially filled our request. The counties sending rejection letters are as follows:
Muskogee, Tulsa, Cleveland, Woodward, Kingfisher, Beaver, Dewey, Roger Mills, Lincoln, Love Pottawatomie, Garvin.
This list will be updated as we continue to receive letters.
Our question to our fellow Oklahomans is simple. Look at the list of records that are being hidden from you citing national security concerns. Are elections that hide ANYTHING from public view and scrutiny even constitutional?
When we ask our elected officials this question we receive silence in return.
