Vote fur me! Dogs try a festive look
DOGS at polling stations were out in force as voters took their canine friends to join in the democratic process.
The popular hashtag #dogsatpollingstations has been an increasingly prominent feature of elections in recent years.
This year, members of the electorate honoured the December election by putting a festive spin on the tradition.
Pete Way put a string of Christmas lights on his dog, Buster, when he went to cast his vote in Wantage, Oxfordshire.
Singer Nerina Pallot was accompanied by her dog, Maggie – complete with Christmas sweater – as she cast her vote.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan had his dog, Luna, in tow as he turned up to vote.
In a video posted to Twitter, he said: “My name is Sadiq Khan, I’m the Mayor of London. I’m here with Luna, we’re voting – make sure you do.”
There was a strong canine turnout in Dulwich Village in south-east London, where a picture posted to Twitter by Kate Turner showed eight dogs waiting outside one polling station.
