Have you ever taken your dog to a political event?

What about taking your pet to go vote? (We didn’t even know that was a thing, but alas, in picture six, you’ll see that this has actually happened).

Even just putting your “I Voted!” sticker on an animal can be pretty funny.

We found the following 11 photos from Getty Images, and we thought they were worth a share. They might provide some happy, mindless scrolling as we await election results -- and at the end, you’ll have a chance to submit a photo of your own “campaign pup.”
