As the counters carry on tallying the votes, David Cameron carries on governing and Labour and the Lib-Dems count their bruises, British dog owners are having a ball on Twitter.
The #dogsatpollingstations hashtag started with a discussion by animal lovers about whether or not their ‘best friend’ could accompany them into the voting booth or not during Thursday’s UK elections.
Here is a collection of adorable “dogs for democracy” that are either patiently waiting outside – or being carried – into the voting station.
It’s a dog’s life after all!
