If we don't vote for the right folks, you may not have to worry about carrying anywhere by the next election.
As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”
Dont have a cc permit but i'll let my buddy know that wow didnt know that.
Noted, I early voted today, left the firearm locked in the car... Line was almost 45 minutes long... I was surprised at the turnout.
Thanks for the heads up.
Just a side note : it's legal in Kansas .... sorry for ya that it's not in Florida. Don't know why they would really automatically restrict a polling place at all.

Thanks for the reminder. When I lived in Virginia, not only did I open carry when I voted, but I stuck my "I Voted" sticker on the grip of my firearm. Won't be doing any of that here.

I voted and I carried. CO is GREAT!

I know that the OP is correct that carry in a polling place is illegal.
I'm the supervisor of a precinct of about 2500 active voters.
Most years, we have light turnout.
This year, though, we expect some major lines between the intense interest in the election and the multi-page ballots.
The election staff will probably be very busy from 5:45am through about 8:30pm.
Since Florida is concealed carry only, and we're expecting very heavy turnout, I would not be surprised to discover later that 20-30 people had carried at my precinct.
If it's concealed and no one notices, did it really happen?
Good post. I left my gun at home last Saturday while early voting.
Yep Georgia has the same Jim Crow law on the books...passed to keep black men from being able to vote when mobs of armed people would stop them...
