Need To Know: Tuesday's Farmington Public Schools Bond Election
Tuesday's Farmington Public Schools bond election is a special election, which means there will be nothing else on your ballot but the $222 million bond question. 

Absent voter ballots

A voter eligible to vote by absent voter ballot may also vote in person at the clerk’s office any time up to 4 p.m. the day before the election. All absent voter ballots must be received by the clerk’s office not later than 8 p.m. on Election Day. While the deadline has passed to have an absent voter application mailed, you can pick up one at the clerk's office in your city.  

Ballot question

A copy of the ballot question is posted on the school district, City of Farmington and City of Farmington Hills websites. 

City Clerks

Farmington clerk Sue Halberstadt, 248-474-5500, ext. 2218, and Farmington Hills city clerk Pam Smith, 248-871-2410, oversee elections in their respective communities. Call their offices if you have questions or concerns on election day.
