Whether you’re over the moon or deflated about the exit poll predictions a few hours ago, social media was awash with colour yesterday as people (and their pets) took to polling stations.
Here are some of the highlights…
As voters headed to the polls all day, many took their dogs and #DogsAtPollingStations trended nationwide, giving a little furry cuteness to the critical day in British Politics.

Why on earth would you take a disgusting, smelly and vile scruff like that to vote with you? I think we need an immediate answer from the dog. #UKElection #dogsatpollingstations #UxbridgeAndSouthRuislip pic.twitter.com/BnnTMvS8Ci

Pablo is a big believer in democracy and making sure his voice (bark) is heard.
Fur boy cares about protecting the planet for future pups, a fair distribution of treats for everyone, and not saying goodbye to his European friends (if we can help it!) #dogsatpollingstations # pic.twitter.com/pARCtXYvKQ

Much like man’s best friends, cats headed out to the polls today after their owners.

Our cat Charlie Hitler followed us to the polling station this morning. He’s an arsehole so doubtless he’d vote for the Brexit party if he could, but thankfully he can’t, so we voted to put @jeremycorbyn and El Gato in Downing Street instead #catsatpollingstations pic.twitter.com/CM7Afc5HqE

And an amazing turnout….
Never in my adult life have I ever queued for an election. Every vote counts. Get every young person you know into a voting booth. Let’s #KickBorisOut #GeneralElection #GE2019 pic.twitter.com/p1tFe9kKiE
