Counting starts in PCC vote
Counting will start soon in the election for the first Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner.
The vote attracted a 19.58 per cent turn out, meaning one in five of those eligible to vote did so.
The four candidates are Pete Levy (Liberal Democrat), Ken Maddock (Conservative) Sue Mountsevens (Independent), and Dr John Savage (Labour) (alphabetical).
The votes for the PCC will be counted alongside votes cast for Bristol's mayor at the University of West of England (UWE) Conference and Exhibition Centre.
If no candidate has more than 50 per cent of the vote, all candidates apart from those in the first and second place are eliminated.
The ballot papers showing a first preference for the eliminated candidates are checked for their second preference.
Any second preference votes for the two remaining candidates are then added to the candidates’ first preference votes and the candidate with the most votes wins.
