These are some of the weird and wonderful locations of polling stations

People have been voting everywhere from pubs to caravans.

Here are some of the more exciting polling stations people have been visiting today.

So hopefully some voters managed to get some other errands done at the same time as doing their civic duty, whether it’s washing their clothes or doing a workout.
