Question about NC Carry Law

Since you are not allowed to carry where State workers work, does this extend to the polling locations? Begs the question are poll workers State employees? If not I see no reason you can't carry there.

Are they "workers" at all?

I'm not in North Carolina. In my state, poll "workers" are unpaid volunteers. The only "worker" I've ever seen when I was voting was the building's custodian, and he was sweeping the corridor outside to polling space. The poll officials are neither "workers" in the context of being employees, nor are they agents of the state.

Not allowed to in Ohio

I don't think there is any actual law in NC preventing it, unless of course the polling place is a school or other already prohibited area.

I can't find anything that specifically mentions carry at polling places. You should be ok unless your polling place is a school or another location where CCW was prohibited.

This is the relevant law about state property:
