Just wondering if it's legal to carry your CCW while voting at the polls. If so, will you be packing??

Of course!


How else can you punch the ballot?


I ain't having no damn hanging chads this year!

Interestingly enough, in Indiana it is legal to carry (w/CCW permit) to the voting booth even though the voting booth is in the school gym! This applies to all civilians, police included. The case arose over an off duty officer being disarmed at the polls last year. Judge got it right!

No.

Here is the pertinent section in Florida:

Even though it's been proven you can, I'll still leave mine at home when I go to the school and vote.
