  1. If there are two candidates standing at the election, the Police and Crime Commisioner is elected under the first-past-the-post electoral system, whereby the candidate with the most votes is elected.

     

    If there are more than two candidates the Police and Crime Commissioner is elected under the supplementary vote system. Voters can vote for a first and second choice candidate they want to elect.  The ballot paper will list all the candidates and voters will vote for their first choice candidate by marking an ‘X’ in the first choice column and for their second choice candidate by marking an ‘X’ in the second choice column.  If a candidate obtains more than 50% of the first choice votes, they will be declared elected.  If no candidate obtains more than 50% of the first choice votes, all candidates except for those in first and second place are eliminated.  The ballot papers showing a first preference for one of the eliminated candidates are checked for their second preference.  Any second preference votes for the remaining two candidates are then added to their first preference votes and the candidate with the most votes is elected.
