"Publicly available records are a fundamental guarantee of our Freedoms & Democracy."

Minnesota Public Records

The Minnesota State Records mission is to grant every person the right to obtain, preview, detect and examine public records, consequently ensuring residents of the state of Minnesotaare provided access in accordance with the Minnesota Data Practices Act, which is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public be provided access to state public records upon request:

The main goal is to enable all members of the general public the right to access Minnesota state public records easily, efficiently and concisely, without the requester having to specify a “need to know.” The only circumstance under which the purpose of the request may be material is if the courts decide to take this factor under consideration when balancing privacy rights against the public interest in disclosure.

MinnesotaState Records contains the information concerning the following subjects: Criminal Records, Court Records, Vital Records and State Background Checks, including the information in the number of over 47 million public records.
