Learn about your absentee voting options

A representative from the Farmington City Clerk’s office will be at the Market this Saturday, September 23, to share information and answer questions on Michigan’s new early voting policy.

Following the passage of Proposal 2 in 2022, the State of Michigan is providing pre-paid postage to return absent voter ballot applications and absent voter ballots. You will not longer need to use stamps.

Proposal 2 also allows for voters to be placed on a permanent ballot list. Voters who request to be placed on this list will no longer need to apply for an absent voter ballot before each election. A ballot will automatically be mailed to the voter’s registered address or an alternate address if provided to the City Clerk’s Office.

To be placed on the permanent ballot list, check the box on the absent voter ballot application, sign and return to the City Clerk’s Office using one of these methods:

  • By mail with pre-paid postage;
  • Using the drive-up ballot drop boxes on either side of City Hall;
  • Emailing;
  • Submiting the application in-person to the City Clerk’s Office located inside City Hall at 23600 Liberty St.
