City officials want you to leave your iPads and cell phones behind when heading to the polls next week.

iPads and other electronic devices now offer applications to help users be informed about the races, but the Chicago Board of Elections want to discourage people from bringing in those electronic devices to the voting booth, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
