I am prohibited, My polling place has always been a school.

Until that prohibition is fixed, carrying at the polls is just an intellectual consideration not an option.

My polling place has always been in a school also; however, I do OC an empty holster and mag carrier w/o negative response.

I early vote for that reason.

I have a chronic condition where some days it is beyond my ability to leave the house; because of that, I early in-person absentee vote. For that, I can go to the government center or the police station, where I can carry. Whichever I choose each year, I also make sure poll workers see me place my "I VOTED" sticker on my holster.
