Wondering when your absent voter ballot will show up?

Absent voter ballots for the November 3 Presidential Election will be available by mail and at City Clerk offices in Farmington and Farmington Hills starting later this month.

The Farmington Hills Clerk’s office will begin mailing ballots on September 24, when ballots will also be available at City Hall.
