How Sandwell people voted

The PCC election uses the supplementary voting system meaning each voter can choose their first and second choice of candidate.

The winner has to receive 50% of the total first preference votes plus one vote. If this does not happen, second preference votes will also be taken into account.

This year has resulted in both first and second choice votes being counted as there was no clear winner across the West Midlands based on the first preference votes.
