Let dogs at polling stations soothe your midweek blues
Just some cute pooches contributing to democracy, or something like that.
Dogs at polling stations are a well-loved election tradition. They are, dare it be said, the best thing about the day – and today’s local election seems to be no different.
So without further ado, here is a collection of some of the cutest pooches who are out doing their civic duty.
This Frenchie seems contemplative as it heads to the polls.
Whereas these dogs seem to view the process as voting as more of an everyday thing.
These pooches are helping direct fellow voters to the polls.
And this dog is just plain majestic.
The dog on the left seems thrilled by the outing, whereas his mate doesn’t look as keen.
And here are a few more dogs doing their best supermodel poses outside polling stations, because you deserve it.
And as an extra added bonus, here are some non-canine animals making their way to the polls. And yes, the inevitable pun that these geese were “flocking to the polls” followed. Sigh.
Voting in the local council and mayoral elections is open today until 10pm.
