Why did my polling station location change?

James from Rock Island asks: “Why did my polling station location change?”

    The recent consolidation of voting stations affected those of you, like James, living in precinct South Rock Island 08. Now, instead of going to vote at the First Church of the Nazarene on 38th Street, you will vote with all our District's other voters of South Rock Island Township (voters living south of 18th Avenue) at the Tri-City Jewish Center on 30th Street. The voters who live north of 18th Avenue in Rock Island will still vote at South Park Presbyterian Church at 15th Avenue and 30th Street. Voters who live in Moline and also on 46th Street/47th Street Ct/29th Ave/30th Ave Ct in Rock Island will still vote at Bethany Baptist Church off 7th Street and John Deere Rd in Moline. Early Voting and Vote-by-Mail is also an option for casting your vote.
    The County Clerk's Office has consolidated 8 polling stations throughout the County going from 46 stations down to 38. This consolidation will save approximately $16,000 in election costs per year (approx. $1,000 per station, per election).
