Dogs At Polling Stations Vs Babies At Polling Stations Is The Hardest Decision You'll Make Today

Cast your vote here.

Over the past few years, one clear trend has emerged on polling day – people love dogs at polling stations.

I love this Country and how #dogsatpollingstations is now an official thing. Happy Election Day people. ✌️

They're so popular they even have their own Twitter emoji.

Today's the day -#dogsatpollingstations! We've teamed up with @TwitterUK to launch new emoji & 'Paw-ing Stations'… https://t.co/WnzKQGqzad

It's easy to see why.

Decisions are made by those that show (p)up. Sprocket says VOTE! #dogsatpollingstations

However, this year a new contender has entered the race: babies at polling stations.

Does Brodie's smile win you over?

Meanwhile in Somerset, Brodie and Mummy Fry have been to vote! #vote #GE2017 #dogsatpollingstations @DogsTrust

Or do you prefer this enthusiastic campaigner?

Maybe you're more in favour of a joint effort from both sides?

Who knew there'd be a need for #dogsatpollingstations quite so soon... or indeed #babiesatpollingstations

And if you're not a dog or a baby person? Don't worry, there are plenty of other options to consider: such as cats at polling stations.

Forget #dogsatpollingstations How about #catsatpollingstations?❤️🐱❤️

Or horses.

We love #dogsatpollingstations but #horsesatpollingstations are the 'mane' event! So 'hoof it down' with your 'neig… https://t.co/d7nCt5YepM

And even rats.
