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.

Four-legged friends in Somerset have been taking part in the fun and we want to see your pictures.

You can Tweet us - @CountyGazette or comment below with your perfect pooches.
