As voters across Suffolk and Essex head to the polls we are looking for pictures of dogs that are encouraging their owners to get involved with the local elections.
The hashtag #DogsAtPollingStations has grown in popularity over the last few years as dogs have been photographed outside community centres, schools and even pubs, where people go to cast their vote.
In Ipswich Patricia Young posted a picture of her pet pooch Sheamus saying how much he loves the walk to their local polling station at Pinewood Community Hall.
The newly formed West Suffolk Council tweeted their a picture of a group dogs waiting patiently to vote - describing it as “Pawfuct”.
