A spokeswoman for the Met said: “In the run up to any election it is not unusual for allegations to be made to police.
The Met are currently assessing 91 allegations across London in relation to the local council and mayoral elections, before any decision is made whether or not to investigate.”
She added: “The Met will not be providing a breakdown or further comment on individual allegations.”
A Brent Council spokesman said: “We have been made aware of these allegations, and are of course cooperating with the police. The election today continues.”
