The trend arose after it was discovered many voters were unclear about the rules surrounding whether their dogs could accompany them inside polling stations, with many opting to tying up their dogs outside as they go in to cast their vote. Much to the delight of Twitter users across the UK, this led to a deluge of pics appearing online of dogs posing outside the country’s polling stations.
