The3million group, which represents EU27 citizens in the United Kingdom, said authorities' unwillingness and incompetence had denied them a vote.

"Follow up w/ your council if you find yourself unexpectedly marked as ineligible to vote!"

Peter Packham from the group Leeds for Europe, said the group's Facebook page was sent a message after a Polish lady was turned away from a polling station "because Leeds City Council had not received the registration letter from the Electoral Commission", adding that it was sent "on 24 April".

Thursday's election is the first Saskia has voted in while living in Britain, due to being unable to vote in 2016's referendum.

"But not today as my form was lost in the post, so I'm told", he wrote on Twitter.

A spokesman for Leeds City Council said: "We are aware of isolated cases where electors have been turned away from polling stations".

Right-wing, populist parties, which openly criticize the EU's migration policies, have been on the rise in the past few years, and are expected to get a fair share of votes during the European elections.

The leading social democrat candidate to head the EU Commission, Timmermans propelled his party to an upset win, taking more than 18% of votes.

"It is outrageous that the incompetence and unwillingness of the government and the Electoral Commission have denied these people a vote".

European Parliament Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt said: "Worrying reports of EU citizens in United Kingdom being denied the right to vote & told to vote "at home".

The main reason given by polling station workers was that the would-be voter's form had not been processed in time.

European Union citizens must transfer their vote from their member state to the United Kingdom in a process which must be done 12 working days in advance of the poll, a process the Electoral Commission said "could be made easier".

The Electoral Commission has blamed the situation on the "very short notice" given for the European elections, which weren't supposed to happen because of Brexit.
