    I always get a sticker, they're good for a free coffee in my town, Alas my polling place has been the Jr/Sr High school for the last twenty years...
    For those who've never fought for it, the price of freedom shall never be known.

    LOL! This made my day.

    I carried too, but it was concealed.

    I wanted a "I Voted" sticker to put on my lawnmower, but forgot to ask for one.

    I didn't think to say anything to them, but:

    Do we, as a society, really want people who are undecided until the last second voting based on propaganda that they're handed on the way in?

    I, personally, would prefer voters who researched their candidates and had already made their choices based on that research, even if their choices were opposite of mine.

    I leave sections blank on the ballot if I'm not familiar with it/the candidate.

    "Member of State Committee At-Large" I have no effing clue what that even means so I don't cast a ballot in that "race".

    I’ve been working for years at the poles and never saw stickers to give out Wonder if it’s up to the judge of elections to ask for them

    I didn;t see that one coming either, so I voted for the reps closest to my house. More local representation on a State level sounded good to me...and I live in a very Conservative area so I am probably safe with those choices.
    My wife sells stun guns and pepper spray! PM me for info!

    Glad things worked out, and you were not hauled away for a mental evaluation for exercising your rights.

    Consider printing out Pa Title 18 Subsection 6120 and the letter below for the November Election.

    Hell the constable at my voting station thanked me for carrying. I think one of the election ass wipes didn’t like it.
