Public Records Request

How Do I make a Public Records Request?

Washington law (Chapter 42.56 RCW) requires that identifiable public records be made available promptly to members of the public for inspection and copying upon request.

We also value your right to access public records. Reminder: General questions do not require a public records request. For information about the Washington State Legislature and the legislative process, visit the Legislative Information Center or call (360) 786-7573.

Requests for public records are administered by the Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives and the Secretary of the Senate. Information regarding requesting public records relating to the Redistricting Commission can be found at the following places:
