The borough is divided into 21 wards, each with 3 councillors.

Following the Barnet local government election on 4 May 2006 the Conservative party gained a working majority and full control of the council. Mike Freer became leader of the council on 11 May 2006, replacing Brian Salinger as Conservative group leader, having previously been Salinger's deputy.

Barnet had 27.4 million invested in Icelandic banks Glitnir and Landsbanki when they collapsed October 2008. A report showed that Barnet Council failed to follow correct procedures when depositing the money.

The current political composition of the Council is:

* Conservative: 37
* Labour: 20
* Liberal Democrat: 6

Barnet Council along with the 31 other London boroughs and the City of London Corporation share local government powers with Greater London Authority. The area covered by London Borough of Barnet and the London Borough of Camden is jointly represented in the London Assembly by Brian Coleman, a Conservative from Barnet.
