Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt issued guidance on how the Kansas concealed carry law would apply to polling places on election days.

Schmidt said that the same concealed carry regulations would apply for each building regardless if it was an election day or not. This means that if it is legal for voters to carry a concealed carry firearm in a polling place building on a non-election day, then they would also be allowed to carry on an election day.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach requested Schmidt’s guidance to clarify any ambiguity over how the law in non-governmental buildings used as election polling places.

Kobach said, “We expected that the ruling would be very detailed and depend on the circumstances. That’s because the concealed carry laws are detailed and depend on the circumstances.”

There are more than 80,000 concealed carry permits issued in Kansas.
