For information about the role of a Police and Crime Commissioner please visit the Leicestershire Police & Crime Commissioner webpage
North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) is the lead authority for the Leicestershire police area, which is covered by nine local authorities in total:-
These elections use the Supplementary Voting system where voters are able to choose a first preference candidate and a second preference candidate.
When the first preference votes has been counted, if no candidate has an overall majority (more than 50%) the second preference votes for the top two candidates are then counted. First preference and second preference votes for these two candidates are then added together and the candidate with the most total votes wins the election.
Each local authority will count their own votes and provide these to NWLDC. Once all the results are collated, we will declare who is elected as PCC for Leicestershire and this web page will be updated.
This page will be updated as we move through the election process.
