A great day out!
Need to entertain a toddler or keep your young ones occupied after school?
Then why not visit a polling station!
You can make an afternoon of it, take a picnic, call in at the park on the way.
You can teach your children all about elections, politicians (the good bit) and the fun things they have to look forward to once they turn 18 (even better if you pass a pub on the way).
They'll get a lovely walk, to laugh at some very funny faces (the candidates) and they might even get to dodge a few tellers.
All in all it's a great day out.
If you live in England or Wales you may have local elections on 2nd May. You've got the right to vote, use it and show your kids how important it is too.
