    I "early voted" today, and did so unarmed as FL state law requires. I had a 3 minute wait. I put my "I voted" sticker on my cell phone case.

    my wife was reviewing her CCW paperwork today and reminded me of that exclusion. I had forgotten that little detail.

    I'm not sure about Maine's laws but my voting place is on school property so I'm out of luck regardless.

    It is illegal to carry in the voting place in Florida but you can still carry outside, not that that does you any good.

    Voted yesterday and had a 35 minute wait. First time I had been unarmed since February trip to Seattle. Still had a 9mm locked in my glovebox.

    Don't agree with you at all..... but, if we get into that subject the thread will get closed, so another time... another place.

    That wouldn't make any difference here at all, unless the school posted it's buildings... and here.... out of 12 schools nearby, only one of them do and they don't use that one for any voting. They have my polling place at a church, and it's not illegal there either.

    Just a final comment.
    At my precinct, we had roughly 1000 people come through, plus some children and/or companions of voters.

    I saw only one firearm all day, and that was openly carried by a Deputy Sheriff in uniform.
    (I'm not sure if he's actually exempt from the restriction, but i saw no reason to ask him to leave it in the car.)
    If there were any other carriers, they kept it out of sight. Even the couple of irate voters were only verbal.

    A good day for poll workers, regardless of your opinion of the outcome.
