Michigan Bans Open Carry at Polling Locations

“Michigan will not allow the open carrying of guns at polling places, clerk’s offices and other locations where absentee ballots are counted, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced Friday.

Benson’s directive¬†prohibits Michigan residents from open-carrying firearms “in a polling place, in any hallway used by voters to enter or exit, or within 100 feet of any entrance to a building in which a polling place is located.”

“The presence of firearms at the polling place, clerk’s office(s), or absent voter counting board may cause disruption, fear, or intimidation for voters, election workers, and others present,” Benson said in a press release.”
