Absentee Voting / Early Voting

Absentee voting process:  Voter completes an application either online, through the mail, or in person.  Once the application is received, the ballot is placed in a series of envelopes and is given or mailed to the voter.  Once the voted ballot is returned to Farmington City Hall, it is processed by election staff a week prior to Election Day.

Early voting process:  Voter completes an application in person at Farmington City Hall, marks their ballot and places the ballot directly in the ballot counter.
