Yes or no? Right or wrong?
What are your thoughts, I’ve got my gun on my hip and heading out but think I will leave it in the car.

I added a two day poll for those whom wish to share what they do but remain anonymous on the reasoning.

My polling place is my living room, as I live in a mail only area. So yeah, I carried to mine.

Ended up riding motorcycle to polling place so kept it on me until I got there, left it in bike and put it back on when I was done then rode to the dealer where I store it for winter. This will more than likely be the last chance I have to get it up there because of weather (50deg with 35-45mph winds today) high is 40 or so for the next two weeks with snow in the forecast:( so I guess that’s it for this years riding season. I can always ride the Honda if we get a Indian summer!

Not me. I vote at the fire station which is a "building under the control of a unit of local government", so, a prohibited place in IL.

I would have, but was headed to the hospital after. Now tomorrow, especially if the Dims don’t have their blue wave, hell yes I am carrying.

I served as "Senior Officer of Elections" in my voting precinct for three years in Virginia and nine years as a polling place volunteer before that. Our county Registrar for elections asked me once, "Do you carry a firearm when you are serving as the Senior Officer during elections?" My answer was that " if an armed person enters our polling place with the intent of disrupting the voting process or threatening the voters, he/she will not be unopposed and I will be in compliance with state statutes that apply". Fortunately, I never had to deal with that kind of situation. However, people in my (relatively small) county knew me pretty well and often remarked that they felt very secure knowing that I was prepared to keep their polling place safe and secure.

I did not, polling places are usually no guns here, and mine is at a school. But, I think we should be able to.

I did not, because I drove the company vehicle to the polls. Not allowed to carry at work or company vehicles.

The restrictions pertaining to licensed liquor establishments do not apply to liquor stores or other stores that sell only closed containers of alcohol for consumption off the premises.
