BELLEVILLE – The St. Clair County Board unanimously approved a polling place change that will impact voters in Lebanon at their monthly meeting Monday night.  

Voters in Lebanon will see three polling places combined into one. Voters in Lebanon Precinct 001, who currently votes at First United Methodist Church, Lebanon Precinct 002, who currently votes at St. Paul United Church of Christ, and O’Fallon Precinct 004, who currently vote at St. Joseph Catholic Church, will now all vote at The Hett Center located at McKendree University, 400 North Alton. The reason for the change was to offer enhanced parking, more space for voting, and to consolidate resources.
