Public Records Requests

A public record is information created or received while transacting the public business by any agency of North Carolina government or its subdivisions.  North Carolina’s public records law, enacted in 1935, is one of the most open public records laws in the United States. The law provides a very broad definition of what is a public record and stipulates that anyone can request a public record for any reason. It also affirms that public records and public information are property of the people.

You can review the law in full here: NC General Statute Chapter 132.
