Where Do I Vote?

Your polling location is dependent on the address where your house is physically located. If you have a Farmington mailing address, but your house is physically located in Lakeville, you vote in Lakeville. Polling locations are open for voting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

In an effort to prevent COVID-19 exposures, the city has made some changes to the elections process:

  • City staff will be trained and serve as election judges rather than exposing residents by serving as judges.

  • Polling locations will be co-located at City Hall, 430 Third St. and the Rambling River Center, 325 Oak St. This decision has been made in an effort to prevent virus exposure to other community locations.

What you should know when coming to a polling location:

  • As stated in the Governor's Executive Order, voters are required to wear a mask while waiting in line and inside the polling location.  All election judges are required to wear masks.

  • Sanitizing of equipment and booths will be done frequently.

  • Only 10-12 people will be allowed in a polling location at one time, therefore, waiting lines could be outside.

  • Voting booths will be spaced accordingly.

  • Voters should follow social distancing guidelines and keep 6 feet away from other people in line, while inside the polling location and when leaving.
