You are not required to provide any personal information; however, you should provide enough information to allow the Office of
Information Practices (“OIP”) to contact you about this request (name or alias, telephone or fax number, mailing address, e-mail address,
etc.). If the OIP is unable to contact you, the OIP will stop processing this request.

I HAVE REQUESTED THE FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT RECORD:
Attach a copy of your written request to the agency; or describe the government record and your request as specifically as possible,
including record name, subject matter, date, location, purpose, or names of persons to whom the record refers, or other descriptive
information, and the date of your request and how it was made. Attach a second page if needed.

Following is the text of my request (sent by email on 9/12/09):

RECORDS REQUEST
Ms. Roldan,

At this time, I would like to submit a document request. HRS 11-113 refers to a sworn application that is filed by the appropriate official of
the political party that the candidate is a member of. Pursuant to the state open records act, I request access to and copies of all documents
contained in this sworn application for all major-party (Democratic and Republican) presidential candidates on the 2000 and 2004 General
Election ballot.

Because this request is for public, non-commercial use, I request that any fee be waived. If a fee is required, please contact me at this email
address (juriggs@yahoo.com) with the amount, at which time I will decide to pursue or cancel my request.

If my request is denied in whole or part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act. I would also remind
you that the act stipulates that you respond to this request in a timely fashion. I request that the document be mailed either electronically (a
scan of the document is sufficient) or through the postal service, no later than noon, September 18, 2009. If this is not possible, please contact
me at this email address (juriggs@yahoo.com) with a time and a date by which I can expect to receive the document.

Thank you again for your kind assistance, and I will look forward to receiving the documents soon.

Sincerely,
Your Fellow Citizen,
Justin W. Riggs
