Based on FOIA responses by other state agencies on similar FOIA requests, the chances of true, honest FOIA response by the Central Election Committee are zilch. Obviously, refusal of the Committee to truly respond on FOIA request of this nature would highlight concerns, previously published, of major computer fraud in the 2015 general election.

For reasons that are difficult to comprehend, the CEC previously claimed that it was exempt from FOIA. In response, the Knesset enacted an amendment to the Act, specifically applying it to the CEC. The amendment became effective only December 01, 2016. Therefore, the request was filed only now, under the Act in effect.
Prior to the effective date, the CEC "FOIA Officer" offered to conduct an informal FOIA request process. However, as a devout formalist, I preferred to wait, lawfully pay the fees, and file a lawful FOIA request.

The confirmation (or lack of confirmation) of receipt and the designation (or lack of designation) of FOIA request number would indicate pretty soon the intentions of the CEC "FOIA Officer" in this matter.
The expectations with this FOIA request in fact are to document circusmstances, where the CEC refuses to disclose fundamentals regarding integrity of its IT systems, with it - regarding integrity of CEC itself.
