Barnet Council are urging residents to go back if they were unable to vote this morning
Voters were turned away from across the borough this morning.
Some were sent away if they did not have a polling card although they were registered to vote.
In an updated statement, a spokesman for Barnet Council said: “All the updated electoral registers are now in place and people can vote as normal.
“We are advising people who were unable to vote this morning to return again before the polling stations close if at all possible. We apologise for the problems we have experienced.

“We are working to resolve this issue and the updated registers have been sent to all the polling stations, which we expect to be in place by 10am.
