12/12/2017: With all members in attendance, the meeting went smoothly. The Election Commission is still overpaying on the water bill at Brandywine. The County, as leaseholder, is supposed to take care of changing this, but Mr. O'Connor has not yet met with the landlord. Director Tom Bride will bring this up to the County Adminstrator when he meets with him soon. The new Election Commission website should be up and running since Friday, December 15. It is using the same platform as Peoria County.
Three Peoria polling places might be changing. Northwoods Community Church no longer wishes to be a polling place. Unless they change their minds, precinct 92 will vote to the North Branch Library, and precincts 91 and 94 will move to Prayerview Church on Wilhelm Rd.
Candidate filing for local primary races went smoothly without any objections. Software for the pollbooks is being upgraded. And the State's Attorney's office is working on tax exemption for the Brandywine property.
Chairman Cummins expressed concern about the LWV website review which downgraded the Election Commission site because it was difficult to find the dates of meetings. Director Bride explained that the new website should be more user friendly.
