    Vermont Polling Places

    Vermont law prohibits carrying at state institutions. I plan to vote today and my polling place is at a local senior center. Does it become a state institution while voting is taking place?

    Don't want any trouble.

    I'm curious about the same issue. I vote in a clubhouse of my housing association, but in Ohio I may not carry in any government building or any building housing a courthouse, even if the the government is only leasing the space. For example, one major downtown building owned by a bank also houses city leased rooms used for court proceedings, thus is off limits.

    For the sake of simplicity I will not carry when voting.
    #1. I could see where someone could argue that when a "governmental function" is taking place a building becomes a de-facto government building
    #2. Should I inadvertently expose or drop my weapon, I would not want anyone to think I had any intention of brandishing or voter intimidation or anything of the sort. The last thing the pro-liberty movement needs is a story on the 11 o'clock news about how "gun-nuts" feel they need to carry at the polls. I think that voting is one of those functions that makes people nervous in this day and age... so carrying is just not worth it for me . I'd rather express my 2nd amendment rights by voting than carrying for the 10 minutes I'm in there.
    #3. I don't think anyone is going to mug me in the polling place, taking everything I own is the government's job. :)

    I know Texas law specifically states that you cannot carry to polling places during early voting or the day of the election.

    In Nebraska you can't carry in a polling place. And my polling place is a church which is also off limits for CCW in Nebraska.
