[ARCHIVED] Three Polling Places To Be Moved For March 17 Primary

The Peoria County Election Commission was notified by Independence Village of Peoria, St. Sharbel Apartments, and Lutheran Hillside Village of their inability to be polling places for the March 17, 2020, primary election. This is due to the concerns for the well-being of their elderly residents regarding the risks of influenza and potentially COVID-19.

All affected voters will be notified by mail of their new polling place. Alternatively, people may still Vote by Mail. The deadline to apply for Vote by Mail for the General Primary Election is 7:00 p.m., Thursday, March 12. All ballots received postmarked on or before March 17 will be counted.

Early Voting is also available through the Monday prior to the election. Early Voting dates and times can be found at

“We respect that these facilities are looking after the best interests of their elderly, at-risk population,” reiterates Thomas Bride, Director of the Peoria County Election Commission. “we apologize for any inconvenience these changes may have caused, but we appreciate everyone’s understanding of the current situation.”

Precincts PE80, PE83, and PE85 voters will move from Independence Village to ICC Peoria, 5407 N University St.

Precinct PE57 voters will move from St. Sharbel Apartments to St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1427 W Lake Ave.

Precincts PE86 and RI03 voters will move from Lutheran Hillside Village to Mossville Methodist Church, 1015 E Mossville Rd.
