    Default Polling place in a church carry question.

    If my polling place is in a church and I have my license to carry - Am I legal to carry into the polling place? Ty for all responses.

    I don't think there is any problem with it legally.
    Personally, I would go concealed.
    If I'm wrong someone will chime in.

    From my viewpoint, I should open carry this time. To put into practice my God given right in his house. If he approves, who am I to say no?

    My polling place is in the church's basement. I open carry. Never had any problems.

    Of course, if you can walk from your home to the polling place then no LTCF is required as long as you're OCing. If you drive or CC, then you need an LTCF.

    My polling place never has any "I Voted" stickers for me to stick onto my holster.

    Not quite correct. PA is still in a State Of Emergency.
    So a LTCF is needed even for open carry.

    There is no law prohibiting carry in a church or at a polling place

    This is going to vary from state to state. PA has no law against carrying in church. However, Ohio specifically outlaws carrying a firearm in church unless the pastor consents.
