Open Records Request

The Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to the records of government bodies at all levels in Colorado. The law was first enacted in 1969. Most records are public and open for inspection.

Make an Open Records Request

Elected Officials and Department Heads are the custodians of records maintained within their respective offices and departments.
The County Commissioners’ Office retains records centrally maintained by Boulder County, but Elected Officials and Departments Heads may develop their own policies and procedures regarding public records in their custody.

To make a request:

  1. Search the Public Records Database
    If the record is not listed there then...
  2. Complete the Public Records Request Form
  3. Read the county's Public Records Policy for process and policy information.
  4. Send the form to the department or office (list) that maintains the records you are seeking. For links to the county departments see the County Department Listings or call 303-441-3131.


Please call the County Attorney's Office for assistance at 303-441-3190.
