How do I request a FOIL?
Answer: There are two methods one can use to access a FOIL request form. One, an individual can go to the Broome County Office Building and on the sixth floor in the Office of the Clerk of the Legislature obtain a FOIL request form. The other option is to fill out the request form online; the form options can be found near the bottom of the Freedom of Information Law homepage. To submit the form one has four options: email the form to the Office of the Clerk of the Legislature (firstname.lastname@example.org ), bring the completed form to the Office of the Clerk of the Legislature, mail the completed form to the Office of the Clerk of the Legislature (PO Box 1766, 60 Hawley Street, Sixth Floor, Binghamton NY 13902-1766), or fax the completed form to the Office of the Clerk of the Legislature (607-778-8869).
The only exceptions to the above directions are requests for records located in the County Clerk's Office, Board of Elections, and the Department of Social Serivces. To obtain records from these departments, one should request information directly from these departments. In addition, to obtain Coroner/ME records one must request this information from the County Attorney.
