Voting system

  • PCC elections use the Supplementary Vote system, which is different to a normal election. The ballot paper will look different to a normal election.
  • Supplementary voting works as follows. Voters can – if they wish, it’s not compulsory – mark on the ballot paper their first and second choices.
  • If a candidate receives more than half of all the first choice votes, they are elected immediately.
  • If this does not happen, the two candidates with the most first choice votes go through to a second round. All other candidates are eliminated, but their second choice votes for either of the top two candidates are added to the totals for those two candidates from the first round.
  • The candidate with the highest combined total of first and second choice votes will be elected as the Police and Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands.
