Readers across Lincolnshire and Rutland embrace the ‘dogs at polling stations’ trend





The ‘dogs at polling stations’ trend has become a popular fixture of election days in recent years — and it’s been embraced by our readers today.

What better way to democratic right to vote than to do it while taking your precious pooch for a walk at the same time?

And, with the prospect of bumping into cute dogs such as these, there’s even more motivation for the rest of us to have our say.
