About your vote

You need to be registered to be able to vote.

If you are not registered visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or contact your local council.

If you are registered and eligible to vote, you can either vote in person at a polling station, by post, or by proxy (allowing someone you trust to vote on your behalf).

PCCs and PFCCs and Mayors who hold PCC or equivalent functions are elected using the first past the post voting system, where the candidate with the most votes, wins. Voters will vote by choosing a single candidate on the ballot paper. This is the same system as UK Parliamentary elections and local elections in England.
