The Peoria County Board of Election Commissioners met for their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. Public comments showed concern for the school board candidate petitions and the handling of the challenges.
Under expenditures, $34,000 was left from the 2022 budget, but some of that money will pay for paper that has been ordered but has not yet been received. Only one bid had been received for a Permanent Vote by Mail mass mailing. Quick Silver’s bid of $10,000 was approved. Approval was also granted for equipment delivery for the 2023 election cycle to Federal Warehouse for the sum of $5900. They have been used in the past without any problems.
There will be no primary voting in Peoria County this year since it is not needed. The printing of ballots could not be completed until January 26 because municipalities and libraries do not need to complete their lists until then. First ballots will go to overseas and military voters on February 17.
The Board moved to executive session to discuss pending or anticipated litigation.
