Can you pack your concealed weapon legally while in a voting booth?

A big no on polling locations.

Banks are not on the prohibited list.

Thanks Joe, does that include any banks too ?
No, read that list of prohibited places he posted. Banks are NOT prohibited places in Florida Statutes!

I think there is one exception to banks and that’s federal reserve banks. But since the nearest one to us is in Atlanta and I‘m pretty sure they are not open to the public anyways, I think its a non event. :unsure:

Florida law does not prohibit you from carrying in a house of worship.

It may be that some people believe that God's law prohibits it, and if that is what you're talking about, then I will not dispute that with you.
I'm in Ohio, where carrying in a house of worship is prohibited.

Using correct terminology, those would not be an "exception." Any places prohibited by federal law are the 15th "prohibited place" listed in Florida Statute Chapter 790.06(12)(a), as you quoted and linked in your post #2 above. So as racer is fond of saying, Florida Statute makes it "illegal'er!" 🤪

My Vystar Credit union has a "no guns" sign posted. Hummm, this could get complicated as I am a "Member" and therefore on my property. On the other tentacle, "NEVER BE A TEST CASE!"

Well, of course, "no guns" signs have no force of law in FL, presently (and hopefully for quite a long time). Therefore, "Concealed is Concealed." If you're caught, they can force you to leave. If you refuse, it's then "Armed trespass." With "force of law" signs, you're guilty of a crime regardless of whether or not they force you to leave.

Something I think the "fisherman" 2A people in FL would learn about getting "constitutional carry" in FL.

If it's in FL, the sign has no weight of law. It's simply the bank's policy. Certainly they can ask you to leave if they discover that you're armed. And then you should leave. There is no "test case." The only trouble is if you refuse to leave. Then it's armed trespass, and that's no bueno for you.

DeSantis just told the DOJ that under Florida law, their poll watchers will not be allowed in. Period
