Police and Crime Commissioner elections use the Supplementary Vote (SV) system. The ballot paper will list the PCC candidates, with two columns for marking your first choice and second choice.
In the first column, you mark a cross next to the candidate who is your first choice. For your vote to be counted, you need to cast a first-choice vote.
In the second column, you can mark a cross next to the candidate who is your second choice. You don't have to mark a second choice but if there is a requirement to count the second choice column, your vote will not be counted at the second stage if it is left blank.
If only two candidates stand, the election will use the first-past-the-post system and you may only vote for one candidate.
