Local Elections 2018: #DogsAtPollingStations
One of our favorite polling day traditions is the #DogsAtPollingStations hastag on twitter. It combines our two favorite things, dogs and democracy whats not to love? We thought we’d share some of the best snaps we spotted on twitter today:
Buddy looked majestic in the early morning sun, his mum was also first to vote at their polling station!

Okay, so Dasher isn’t technically at a polling station but he’s been exercising his democratic rights in his own mini-election and we can’t ignore how amazing this is!
After taking Mum to vote in the #LocalElection2018 this morning, I voted in my own election. I’m glad I had four votes as they are all excellent candidates and very worthy causes! 🐶🗳🐾🤗#DogsAtPollingStations #GDOffDuty #PollingDay #GuideDog pic.twitter.com/60X6RA0DIR
