What if I just want to look at the public records?
Public records are available for inspection, free of charge. You can make an appointment to visit our office during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding state holidays). Please submit your request to:

The Records Act (RCW 42.56) states that certain types of records and information are exempt from public inspection and copying. Where exempt information can be deleted (redacted) from a record, our public records staff will provide the record with the exempt information redacted and our staff will identify the specific exemption that applies to the redactions.

If you obtain a list of individuals through a public records request, it may not be used for any kind of commercial purpose. It also may not be used to contact those individuals as part of a profit-seeking business activity (RCW 42.56.070(8)).
