#DogsAtPollingStations Are Back For The Local Election 2017 And We Couldn't Be Happier

Dogs love democracy.

Dogs may not have a vote in the local elections, but that didn’t stop them from stealing the show at polling stations across the country on Thursday.

Elections are being held in 34 councils in England and for all councils in Scotland and Wales.

As voters head to the polls, their four-legged companions have been keeping them company and posing for snaps as #DogsAtPollingStations returns for another glorious year.

Dogs love democracy

But some are upset they didn’t get a vote

Others looked unimpressed at being shortchanged on their morning walk

The excitement was lost on Ellie

And it was just too early for others

Otto and Ava were just happy to be a part of the experience

But the choice of candidates was disappointing for other pooches

Bane has a policy suggestion of his own

And it wasn’t just just dogs who wanted to get involved in today’s politics, #GeeseAtPollingStations were also spotted
