The Peoria County Board of Election Commissioners met on Thursday, March 14, 2019. Everyone was present except LaColis Reed. All of the bills that were approved were standard. The Verizon bill was a little higher because the hot spots are on. There was a bill for software support, and a bill to Amazon for something that could not be found locally.
The Board approved moving Precincts 02 and 20 from Hollis Grade School to the Bartonville Christian Church. This had been discussed at the February meeting but could not be approved at that time because plans were finalized too late to be included in the agenda.
In the updates on the primary and general elections, Director Tom Bride said the judges liked the pollbooks, and the drop off changes that were planned after the November election went very smoothly. Turn out at the primary was 10.8%, which was higher than two years ago. As of March 14, 761 ballots had been mailed out (which is ahead of two years ago), and 233 people had voted early. Tom is expecting a turn out of over 20% for the general election.
