In Pictures: Dogs at polling stations

As the UK goes to the polls in the European Parliament elections, many of the nation’s pets are getting in on the action as well.

Dogs across the country are enjoying the extra exercise as they accompany their owners to schools, villages halls, pubs and other local venues hosting the ballot.

Plenty of owners were adding to the #DogsAtPollingStations hashtag.

And it wasn’t only dogs having a trip to the voting booths…

It’s Election Day, you know what that means – #DogsAtPollingStations
