The verb take appears to be in the subjunctive mood. Consider removing the particle to.
The subjunctive mood is relatively rare in English. One of its functions is to express a demand, request, or requirement in a subordinate clause. In this usage, the subjunctive doesn’t have a special form; it simply uses the base form of a verb, such as be, go, or see, without the particle to.
