    Polling Places and carrying.

    What is the view of OCing or carrying period at a polling place, not on the oh no list?
    IE: Libraries, churches etc.

    I suspect that you'd get turned away pretty quick, but is there any real legal restriction?

    You've still got polling places?

    Polling places are not prohibited places in Washington state. I suspect they would have a real problem if they were to refuse you your right to vote when you are doing something completely legal.

    Well since in every county except Pierce you vote by mail this applies only to Pierce County. I vote at the NE Tacoma community center, Norpoint Community Center, and I OC. Not a word was said in the primary. It is legal and I intend to do so next week as well. As long as it is not a school, I would do so with no concerns.

    My "Polling Place" not only allows firearms, they are encouraged.


    I voted while sitting comfortably in my recliner.

    Ours usually is too, but with the impact that this years seems to be able to make, we are doing it in person. Also, It will be the first time my son is voting, so its almost like a big deal.
