Peoria County Board of Election Commissioners met for their regular monthly meeting on April 11. During public comments, several citizens noted problems with the use of a stylus during the April 4 election. Most of the speakers were either election judges or poll watchers. They had trouble with verification of signatures and preferred the use of pen and paper. The commission will be getting feedback from the judges in a presentation at a later date.
There was an approximately 16% turnout for that election. There were more ballots mailed than cast in person. About 8,200 people voted on election day, and 2,800 voted early. Certification was set for April 19, and Martha Ross is expected to win the District 1 School Board election in Peoria.
