  8. Investigation to be launched into Barnet voting blunder

    An investigation is being launched into a council blunder that meant many voters in Barnet were turned away from the ballot box.

    Outside polling station

    Names were missing from polling lists across the borough and residents, including the Chief Rabbi, who attempted to cast their vote were stopped.

    The council apologised for the bungle and later offered emergency proxy votes to residents who had been affected.

    It will launch an investigation once the results in London have been declared.

    All of Barnet's 155 polling stations were affected and the council is still unable to say how many of the 236,196 registered voters had been turned away.
