    CCDW While Voting in KY?

    I've looked for info on this site as this is the first election I've voted in while actively carrying, I was wondering if there are any nasty little signs that are going to pop up when I get to the polls to vote?

    Thx!

  4. I'm about 95% sure that carrying a firearm at a poll is illegal. If you are talking about federal elections I would say 99% because every federal building is off limits.

    Well, the polling place is NOT a school and the KY regs don't say anything about a polling place being off limits. Just wondered if other folks had encountered temporary signs prohibiting carrying.

    On a side note, I'd think it would be very ironic if not hypocritical that our 2nd Amendment rights would be squelched while exercising my constitutional right/duty to vote- state or federal election, notwithstanding.

    Thanks for your input.

    It's not legal to carry in a polling place in SC, no signs required.

    KK

  7. I looked up a KY legal cite and it states:

    "Kentucky has no law prohibiting firearms in:

    Hospitals;

    Places of worship;

    Sports arenas;

    Gambling facilities; or

    Polling places."

    You should read up the actual laws of your state or county because some states may not restrict you in your state laws but will restrict you with county or city laws.
    I'm not a lawyer so take it for what it's worth. For legal advice ask a lawyer.

    Thanks but I have read the 'actual laws' of my state and they do not specifically ban weapons from voting areas. I was originally asking if anyone had experienced coming to a polling place and encounter signs stating that concealed carry or firearms in general were prohibited. I just left the pistol in the car... didn't like doing that but there were other issues involved as well.

    Thanks for the responses everyone!

    As was stated, no restrictions unless a normally prohibited place. Hell man, you can carry in our capital building lol.

    Thanks guys, I confirmed what I was reading... that it is allowable to carry concealed in a polling place (as long as its permissible at the venue, school, court house, etc.)
