    I am 58, going on 59 and there is no way in heck that I could stand in line for up to 6 hours without a potty break.  However, with that being said, I would do it anyway, while wearing a depends, for I would not want all the vets in my family's history to haunt me and smack me silly, not to mention my son and husband.

      Someone should distribute Depends to people on the line, with a changing booth for privacy (maybe in a van, so they can't force it off the sidewalk) and a place-holder person.  Then when they come out of the voting booth, they should collect the used Depends and, after a day of fermentation, deliver them to the Elections Department.

        ...then a Portapotty should be, too.   Some enterprising person with a septic tank cleaning business could donate a row of Portapotties.  

        After all, didn't this new law just say that restrooms in polling places would be closed?  It didn't say anything about potties being trucked in, right?
