Court Rules Electronic Ballot Images & Voting Records Are Subject To State FOIL

NY State Supreme Court Justice Martin D. Auffredo (Essex County) has ruled in Kosmider v. Whitney et al.  This is a significant ruling holding that copies of electronic ballot images and cast vote records are subject to the state’s Freedom of Information Law. The decision is not only historic for election administration in New York, but should  be of interest nationwide and internationally to those promoting transparency, accuracy and verification of election results.
