• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.
  • The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Those are the dates when the polling places are open for voters. When not being used as polling places the OCGA prohibitions do not apply unless otherwise prohibited.
Just copying the sections listed by the grumpy-one returns the following results. It's not that much of a handicap that he didn't list the URL's.

http://law.justia.com/codes/georgia/2010/title-16/chapter-11/article-4/part-3/16-11-127/
16-11-127. Carrying weapons in unauthorized locations; penalty

http://law.justia.com/codes/georgia/2010/title-21/chapter-2/article-11/part-1/21-2-413/
21-2-413. Conduct of voters, campaigners, and others at polling places generally
