FOIL request with the NY Board of Elections for any available spreadsheets of election result data

Hello,

I'm requesting any and all election results, between 1994 and 2012, that the New York State Board of Elections has in spreadsheet form (where the file format is one of: .XLS, .XLSX, .TSV, or .CSV).

To clarify further: the NYS BoE already publishes PDF versions of election results on its website, and has one for every race. For example, there are PDFs for every race in 2012, here: http://www.elections.ny.gov/2012ElectionResults.html.

For some races, in some years, there are spreadsheets (.XLS files) available, such as the federal race results in 2010, here: http://www.elections.ny.gov/2010ElectionResults.html. These are the kinds of files I am looking for.

I do not need paper versions of anything. I am only requesting digital material.

Thank you!

-- Eric Mill
