Peoria County – The Peoria County Election Commission has released new Peoria County voting precinct maps for public review. Precincts have changed as a result of the 2020 census results as well as changes to election law that allows for an increased number of voters per precinct. 

The new precinct maps are available for review at https://data-peoriacountygis.opendata.arcgis.com/apps/2020-peoria-county-board-redistricting-2022-election-1/explore. Viewers can choose to view current and proposed precincts using this map. Check the box next to "County Precincts Proposed" to show the new map.

“The number of precincts in Peoria County are decreasing by 32%, as changes to State of Illinois law now allows for more voters per precinct,” said Tom Bride, Executive Director of the Peoria County Election Commission. “However, most of our polling places will remain the same and will not be reduced by this amount. Every registered voter in the County will receive a new voter registration card with specific information soon.”
