Statewide Candidate Listing with Address

It appears that the candidate_list.txt file was removed from the State Board of Elections website after 2006. The file included the name and address of every person filing for election. We would like to request this file for the past 7 years for every candidate filing for office in North Carolina. This is the link to the file format made available by The NCSBOE - https://s3.amazonaws.com/dl.ncsbe.gov/ENRS/layout_candidate_list.txt

    Hi All,

    Thank you again for your assistance with this request.

    I’ve noted that the files related to Candidate Filing are available at the link you’ve provided, but they only display information for 2015, 2016, 2017, and also do not include addresses.
    I’d like to clarify once again that the requester is asking for access to the candidate_list.txt file that was removed from SBOE’s site after 2006. This file included the address of the candidate who filed. They would like to request access to this information and it should include the date range back to 2010 for every candidate filing for office in North Carolina, and should be formatted in the style made available by NCSCBE at https://s3.amazonaws.com/dl.ncsbe.gov/ENRS/layout_candidate_list.txt. Please let me know whether this is possible, and if you have any additional questions.
    Please refer to original request (below).
    Thank you for your help.
    Have a great day!

    Good Afternoon,

    Thank you for your assistance!
    I do not believe that this information fully satisfies the request – The sender indicated that they would like “to request this file for the past 7 years for every candidate filing for office in North Carolina.” At the link you’ve provided the only information available is for 2017.
    If there is some other way that they can access this information, please let me know.
    Have a great afternoon!

    Good Afternoon NCSBOE,
    Happy Monday!
    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please send me an email back.
    We received a new request for information that we believe may be available at your office, via SunshineRequest.com! Could you please assist me with completing this request, or point me in the direction of the appropriate party to contact?
    Here is the information sent by the requestor –
