Public Records Request

  • Requesting Public Records

    Access to public records is provided in compliance with applicable laws. While the state encourages disclosure of public records, state law does allow for some information to be withheld.

    Before starting a search for accessible public records, please review the Public Records section of the Revised Code of Washington, Chapters 42.56.001 through 42.56.903. Detailed information on the state Public Records Act (RCW 42.56) is also available at the Office of the Attorney General.
