Meet some of the glorious dogs at polling stations

There are a lot of very democratic dogs out today.

As people up and down the country cast their vote in the General Election, there are many, many patient pups waiting outside polling stations – much to the joy of Twitter.

It’s one of the most eagerly awaited trends to appear on polling day – voters posting pictures of their dogs with the hashtag #dogsatpollingstations
