    Thanks Tanya, excellent tip. I would also suggest that you take the rules with you as I have run into roadblocks at election time when I have tried to take my children to vote. I stood my ground and they were allowed to vote but it was not pleasant. I think not everyone has been trained to know the rules. If you run into trouble ask for the supervisor.
