The main order of business was finishing up the April consolidated election.
Donations were approved to Limestone ROTC and the Peoria County Auxiliary Police. They helped on election day to facilitate the collection of ballots that night. Chairman Collins expressed his appreciation of their work.
The official canvas was scheduled for April 17, with all ballots counted. The total count was down from two years ago, probably because two jurisdictions in the County had no contested races.
Where there were contests, voting was up.
Mail-in voting was up 175%, but on site voting was down.
It was reported that precinct voting results can be found on the County GIS site which can be reached from the Election Commission website. When I checked, I found results for last November's election, but not the ones in February or April of this year. Hopefully they will be up soon.
