U.K. voters are proving that democracy is better with dogs


What a barkin’ good time.

Sure, local government and democracy are important, but what’s even more essential is that dogs are accompanying owners on their way to vote. #DogsAtPollingStations is trending in Britain this election day, and our hearts are screaming from the adorability of it all. 

Check out some of the cutest pets from Instagram and Twitter:

The hounds have also sparked a rival hashtag, #CatsAtPollingStations. Felines also care about democracy, duh.

Wait, who’s on the ballot again? Sorry, just so distracted from wanting to snuggle up with all these cuties.
