It’s election day in the UK and that can mean only one thing: dogs at polling stations.
Yes, it’s an important time in the political history of the country we live in. And yes, we all need to exercise our democratic duty to get out and vote, whether for a metropolitan mayor, a local councillor, a police and crime commissioner, a Welsh MS or Scottish MSP.
But no matter your political persuasion, there’s something everyone in the UK can agree on. There are dogs, they are at polling stations, and they are all very good boys and girls.
Here are some of the best we’ve found so far.
