Police and Crime Commissioner Elections

The first Police and Crime Commissioner elections were held in England and Wales (but not London) on Thursday 15 November 2012

On 15 November 2012, voters elected Mr David Lloyd to serve until May 2016 as Hertfordshire's first Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

The turnout in Hertfordshire was 14.5% and the turnout in the Welwyn Hatfield voting area was 14.4%.

The four candidates who contested the election were Ms Sherma Batson (Labour Party Candidate), Mr David Edward Lloyd (The Conservative Party Candidate), Ms Marion Ann Mason (UKIP), and Mr Christopher Townsend (Liberal Democrat).

Under the supplementary voting system, voters were asked to indicate both a first and second preference from the four candidates.  As no candidate received more than 50% of the first preference votes, candidates Mr David Lloyd and Ms Sherma Batson progressed to the second round, as they had accrued the most first preference votes.  The total number of valid first and second preference votes cast for these candidates is shown below:
