City Emails In Personal Account
What is CORA?
Secretary of State Website Info.
"CORA" stands for "Colorado Open Records
Act". In the spirit of open government, the
Colorado Open Records Act  requires that
most public records be available to the public.
Anyone can request information that is in the
possession of a government office, including
the Secretary of State’s office.
Where do I submit my records request?
You must submit your request to the custodian
of the record- the government office that
actually holds the record itself. There is no
central repository for public records or single
office that fulfills public records requests in
Colorado. For most governmental agencies, you
can submit your request directly to the Public
Information Officer of that agency. If you don’t
know how to contact that person, call the
government entity and ask how to submit your
request. For records in the possession of the
Secretary of State’s office, contact the Public
Information Officer (PIO).
