Young people are being turned away from polling stations even though they are registered?

Social media and some newspapers are running stories that young people, probably voting for the first time have been turned away even though they were registered.

When they went to vote their name was on the list of those registered but it had a black line through it. 

As they are more likely to vote Labour is this one last desperate attempt for Boris the clown to cling on to power?

    This is probably the result of fraud, where these people have been registered for a postal vote by someone else, so they are crossed off the list available at the polling station.  There is no way of knowing who committed the fraud without further investigation. - it could equally well be Labour activists wanting to make sure of more votes.

    This has always been a problem since postal votes were made available on request.  When you could only get one for a reason, normally that you would be away on the day, there was much less of it.

    Anyone entitled to vote but prevented from doing so, may challenge the result in their constituency. However, if they would have voted Labour and the winning Tory candidate had a majority of thousands, it would be a futile gesture. You may like to consider opening a Facebook group for those prevented from voting in marginal constituencies with a view to challenging the result.
