The first preference votes have been counted for the election of Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner.
First preference votes for the election have been counted:
Caroline Henry (Con) 131,318
Paddy Tipping (Lab) 119,271
David Watts (LD) 23,794 Turnout 34%.
The count will now get underway for second preference votes for the Con and Lab candidates.
Voters rank their two favoured candidates on the ballot paper as a first and a second choice.
If a candidate wins 50% or more of the first-preference votes, they win outright.
If not, all but the top two candidates are eliminated, and the second-preference votes of eliminated candidates are reallocated. The candidate with the highest total resulting from this count is elected.
