Submit a New FOIA Reqest
The Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) is intended to provide the public with access to certain governmental documents and records, subject to various exemptions provided by the Act. FOIA does not require the Secretary of State’s office to create documents in response to a request, or to answer questions directed to this office or any other government office(s). FOIA merely requires the Secretary of State’s office to make available to the public the requested record(s).
- Fill out the information below to submit a FOIA request with the West Virginia Secretary of State's office.
- If you are a state agency that needs to add record(s) of recently completed FOIA requests to the database managed by our office (per WV Code §29B-1-3a), please contact our office about gaining access.
- Completed FOIA requests for all state agencies can be viewed at our online FOIA Database.
