To access ballot information for any current election or to access your precinct information, go to

Beginnning with this election, voters in Farmington and all of Oakland County will use the new VerityVoting system,
selected because it is secure, accurate, and easy to use.  Verity is federally certified and meets Michigan's most
stringent standards. 

You will notice several slight changes in your voting experience, including filling in rectangles to the left of your choice rather than ovals to the right, the ballot might be shorter than our former scanners could handle, and the system has a large color screen, making it easy for voters to see if there is a problem with how their ballot was marked.  When your ballot has been successfully cast, you will see the image of an American flag on the screen to assure you that your ballot has been counted.



If you have any questions, please call the Clerk’s office at 248-474-5500.
