Hi Tim,

The information within your public records request is contained within the ballot scanner log files.  Much of the other information within the log files is sensitive to the secure operation of those scanners.  As such, these log files fall under Iowa Code 22.7(3)(50) pertaining to confidential records which are exempt from public records request.

Thank you,


Deputy Commissioner of Elections
