Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 08/12/21: We apologize for the delay in processing and publishing this request on our site. Sunshine Request is a project built and run by a small team at PRC Applications. We run the site in addition to our primary business. While we will always do our best to process and follow up on requests as quickly as possible, there may be occasional delays, depending on our availability in a given week or month.


The submission above has been marked as “Completed”. As originally written it is unclear what specific records the sender hopes to receive, and to whom this request is being addressed, as well as what group of people the content of the request applies to. For example — Is this regarding “Members of the Board of Elections’ Oaths and Bonds”, or, “Members of the Buncombe County, NC Board of Elections”, “Buncombe County Board of Elections”, etc.?

We will assume what the requester may mean is:

Please provide a current copy of the Oaths and Bonds taken by NC Board of Elections Members [whom specifically are you referring to? It’s unclear] when they entered into office [this is unclear, but the dates indicated were 12/01/19 to 08/12/21].

However — This is not written clearly enough for us to process the request.

Please review these links related to “oath” and “bond”:
https://www.ncsbe.gov/about-elections/county-boards-elections
https://www.ncleg.gov/EnactedLegislation/Statutes/PDF/ByChapter/Chapter_163.pdf

If that doesn’t satisfy the question, please submit a new request to our website, clarifying the exact info you’d like to receive. Please write this as though it is being addressed to the entity you’d like us to send it. Please be specific about any dates that are related to the requested info.

This will help us ensure that we are requesting the exact info the sender hopes to receive.


Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to make a request. While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.

☀️ Please be specific:

It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.

It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.
