Chart: Low turnouts in PCC, Mayoral, and by-elections across the country

A graphical illustration of the poor turnouts in the Police and Crime Commissioner, Mayoral and Parliamentary by-elections.

 


* Devon & Cornwall PCC yet to declare

As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.

We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.

    Am I the only person gob-smacked to find that in Wales, we’ve elected a new MP, only 32 years old, who’s ‘reported in the press’ work experience is at a charity. He got all of approx 9,500 votes (yes, thats total, not margin of victory). If that’s what can get you elected to parliament, no wonder we have rubbish politicians. Note that I know nothing about this chap beyond reading a brief article so all factual corrections are welcomed!

    Welcome to party politics in a FPTP system.

    Good point from Newsbot. As for elected PCCs…what’s the point in electing them, they will have no power to ensure that he priorities of the people are reflected in policing practices…still, they will get brilliant salaries for doing bugger-all of any value, so that’s nice……..
