The result of the Police and Crime Commissioner election on 5 May 2016 uses the supplementary voting system.
Voters are limited to a first and second preference choice, although voters do not have to make a second choice if they do not wish to. All the first choices are then counted, and if a candidate receives more than 50 per cent of the first preference votes on the first count then they are elected.
If no candidate receives more than 50 per cent of the first preferences then the top two candidates continue to a second round and all other candidates are set aside. The second-choice votes of everyone whose first choice has been set aside are then counted. Any votes for the two remaining candidates are then added to their first-round totals. Whichever candidate has the most votes after these second-preferences have been allocated is declared the winner.
