Dogs at polling stations – the best pictures from Sky News readers

UK

It’s not just voters who headed to the polls for the general election – plenty of loyal, furry friends have joined their humans for the walk to the ballot box.

As has become a (very welcome) norm in recent years, #dogsatpollingstations has been trending on social media as people shared photos of themselves exercising their pets and democratic rights at the same time.

Sky News readers have been sharing their photos with us throughout the day too.

From dachshunds to huskies and everything in between, here are some of the best snaps we’ve received…
