AS people across the country head out to cast their votes in today's election, their political pooches have also been exercising their voting rights.

The hashtag #DogsAtPollingStations has taken over Twitter once again after a sharp rise in popularity during the EU Referendum last year and the local elections last month.

Swindon voter Jed Avery sent us this picture of Grayson and Precious

Here are some more of our favourite #DogsAtPollingStations from Twitter: 

Some looked incredibly proud to be doing their bit: 

While others did their homework in preparation. 

Some got a bit too excited about the whole affair...

While others turned up to look their best for the camera.

And it's not just dogs getting in on the voting action...
