#DogsAtPollingStations is back and is just as adorable as ever
It’s the referendum over the eighth amendment in Ireland, which means people and animals alike are heading to the polls.
Voting is under way in Ireland’s referendum on abortion, and thousands have made their way to the polls.
Irish people have started voting on whether to repeal a part of the country’s constitution, known as the eighth amendment, which effectively bans abortions.
The referendum is a historic move for the majority Catholic country, with campaigning on both sides for months.
Whichever way people are voting, however, one thing can be agreed, and that’s that a dog is always a welcome presence at a polling station.
