England and Wales Will Use a Form of Instant-Runoff Voting for Police & Crime Commissioner Elections

Published on November 14, 2012, by in General.

On November 15, voters in England and Wales will elect Police and Crime Commissioners, in non-partisan elections. This is a new elected office. See here to see the ballot. Voters will choose a first choice and also a second choice. Second choice ballots won’t matter unless no candidate receives a majority of first choice votes. Thanks to Thomas Jones for the link.

    Sometimes that is not a good thing. Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany come to mind.

    Poor turnout, about 10-20% in most regions, it hit 12% in mine. The candidate I voted for 1st preference came 3rd behind Labour and Conservative. Quite a few Independents have won their elections, and both my preferences were Independents.
