Delaware Code Title 15. Elections § 8032. Public disclosure

All reports made to the Commissioner and all rulings made by the Commissioner under this chapter shall be public and shall, immediately upon their filing, be made available by the office of the Commissioner for inspection and copying at reasonable cost by the public, except that the identity of the candidate or committee which requested a ruling shall not be disclosed without the candidate's or committee's consent.  The Office of the Election Commissioner shall remain open beyond the ordinary close of business on the day the reports are due to be received under § 8030(c) of this title, until all persons who are present at said office at the time of the ordinary close of business have had an opportunity to make reasonable inspection and copying of said reports.

Any contributor who is a law-enforcement officer as defined by § 222 or § 2401 of Title 11 , a probation and parole officer, or a federal or state judicial officer may request that the Commissioner remove that officer’s mailing address from any report to the Commissioner before the report is publicly disclosed.  Any other person, upon application to the board of elections for the county in which that person resides, may request that the person’s mailing address be removed from any report to the Commissioner before the report is publicly disclosed.  After considering the application, if the board of elections determines that good cause exists, it shall approve the removal of the person’s mailing address by the Commissioner before the report is publicly disclosed.
