The Peoria County Election Commission held its monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 12, 2019. Commissioner LaColis Reed was out of town. Under Approval of Bills, Executive Director Tom Bride was reminded to buy locally whenever possible. Early voting location and hours for the April 2, general election were approved. Early voting outside the city of Peoria begins on February 21. Residents of Peoria will have to wait until Friday, March 8, after the results of the primary have been certified. Hollis Grade School will no longer be a polling place because of the school's safety concerns. Those precincts will be moved back to Bartonville Christian Church, although official approval cannot happen until next month. The church board did not pass this until the morning of the Commission meeting, so it could not be on the agenda. Pollbook training started on February 13. As of February 12, 250 people had already voted by mail and 250 people had voted early at the Commission office.
The Commission then moved into Executive Session to discuss pending litigation.
