I WAS present at the Count yesterday up at Alexandra Palace that saw several constituencies' the ballot papers processed by the new scanning machines (not before seen).
Towards the end, one of the speakers referred to the earlier issues at Barnet where some voters were turned away at polling stations due to problems with electoral lists. She criticised the administration there, particularly senior officials there.

I forgot to add that security at the Count was tight. ID, airport-style scanners and stand-off frisking. That was for starters.
Two Haringey Councillors experienced difficulty and delay in gaining entry. One was the Consort of the Mayor (Cllr. Steven Mann) who was at the time in the company of the Mayor of Haringey, whose bona fides were never in question. The other Councillor who had difficulty gaining entry was me!
