England and Wales Police and Crime Commission elections 2016 map.svg
The 40 police force areas within England and Wales where elections were held. Colours denote the winning party, as shown in the main table of results.
The England and Wales police and crime commission voter turnout in 2016. It was higher than in 2012, with an average of 23% to 26% voter turn out.

The elections were for 40 of the 43 territorial police forces in England and Wales using the supplementary vote system; the two police forces of Greater London are not involved (the elected Mayor of London is classed as the police and crime commissioner for the Metropolitan Police District, while the Court of Common Council fulfils the role for the City of London Police). There was no election for the Greater Manchester Police as the role of police and crime commissioner was due to be abolished in 2017 and replaced with the directly elected Mayor of Greater Manchester.[4] Elections for police and crime commissioners do not take place in Scotland or Northern Ireland as policing and justice powers are devolved to the Scottish Parliament and Northern Ireland Assembly.[5]

This was the second time police and crime commissioner elections had been held.

BackgroundEdit

The election used the supplementary vote system: voters were instructed to mark the ballot paper with their first and second choices of candidate (although there were an unusually large number of spoilt ballots). If no candidate got a majority of first preference votes, the top two candidates went on to a second round in which second preference votes of the eliminated candidates were allocated to them to produce a winner. This is the system used to elect London's mayor.[6] Section 57 of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 directs that the voting system is first past the post if there are only two candidates for a specific commissioner region.[7]

The role of police and crime commissioner for the Greater Manchester Police was abolished in 2017 and replaced with the directly elected Mayor of Greater Manchester, who assumed the responsibilities of the police and crime commissioner. No election was therefore held in 2016 and Tony Lloyd remained as police and crime commissioner and interim mayor until the mayoral election took place in 2017.[4]

Parties standingEdit

Both Labour and the Conservatives fielded candidates in all 40 elections, while UKIP fielded 34 candidates and the Liberal Democrats 30 candidates. The Green Party fielded seven candidates and the English Democrats four candidates. Plaid Cymru fielded candidates for all four Welsh seats. There were 29 other candidates; 25 stood as independents and four stood under other labels (one as Lincolnshire Independents and three as Zero Tolerance Policing ex Chief).
