Police and Crime Commissioners election, 5 May 2016

Police and Crime Commissioners are elected by the supplementary vote system. This is the same voting system that is used in mayoral elections. If a candidate receives more than half of all first choice votes, they are elected immediately.

If this doesn't happen, the two candidates with the most first choice votes go through to a second round.

All other candidates are eliminated. The second choice votes of everyone whose first choice has been eliminated are then counted and votes for the remaining candidates are added to their first round totals.

The candidate with the highest combined total of first and second choice votes are elected as the Police and Crime Commissioner for their police force area.
