    True, true. I carried when I voted during the last election though--because I vote via absentee ballot from the comfort of my kitchen table. No waiting in lines, and it gave me plenty of time to do all the research I wanted for any of the names on the ballot.

    I was expecting the first absentee ballot w/ arms reply to come from the sandbox but got one from the kitchen table.

    Our polling place is in a local elemantary school, my son's in fact. So GOOD TO GO! Even during school hours, which is when I'll be there.

    Voting here is mail-in only, so I'm always good. Before that it was usually done in the elementary school, so it was a no-go.

    My polling location was receently changed, from one elementary school to another, so no carry for me.
    From now on I will be voting absentee.

    Should it be legal regardless of where the voting occurs? Yes. In my area voting is done in the local school building so it's a no-no here.

    I used to as my prior districts polling place was a community center.
    No longer though now as I'm now voting at a school.
    No arms of any sort what so ever on my person nor in my vehicle, including pocket knives or OC/CS.

    IMHO a state issue carry license should allow waiver of all these conditions.

    My polling place was an elementary school, and I DID!




    OK....CC is allowed in school parking lots as long as you don't leave your car. I was discharged from the hospital on Monday and was driven to the polls on Tuesday, wearing my mask. An Officer of the Election saw me and flagged us down, and offered that if I would pull into a handicapped spot, they would bring me a ballot and I could vote from the car. So I got curbside service and didn't have to disarm to go inside.

    Our polling place has a sign that says "curb side voting" in front of a handicapped space.

    Perfectly legal in Kentucky (unless in a school). My polling place is in a church, so..... yep.
