CORA - Colorado Open Records Act

In the spirit of open government, the Colorado Open Records Act requires that most public records be available to the public. Anyone can request information that is in the possession of a government office, including the Secretary of State’s office.

How to submit a records request:

There is no special form to fill out for a CORA request. If you want to gain access to information and evoke the CORA law, then you must make a written request.

You can send your request by mail or fax to:

Vice President of Finance & Technology
Chief Financial Officer
Custodian of Records
Fiscal Services Department
5900 S. Santa Fe Drive
Littleton, CO 80120
Fax: (303) 797-5708

To make sure that you receive the information you want, include the following with your request:

  • Your name and mailing address.
  • Your phone number or email address so that we can contact you if we have questions about your request.
  • A detailed list or description of the specific information that you are seeking. The more specific your request is, the faster we can complete it. Being specific also helps us to avoid giving you too much or too little information.

You will not be asked why you need the information. However, you may be asked to clarify your request in order to determine which documents are relevant and avoid giving you too much or too little information.
