If you live in the voting precincts of Du Quoin 3, 6, 10 and 12 -- your polling place on Tuesday has moved.

Voting for all four precincts will now be held at the Exhibition Hall at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds, 655 Executive Drive. The hours will remain the same: 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

According to Perry County Clerk Beth Lipe, the polling place had to be moved out of the Du Quoin United Pentecostal Church at 1311 S. Washington St. because of a "COVID-19" situation at the church. Lipe said the Perry County Health Department informed her office of the problem Friday afternoon. She found the new site with the help of the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds.
