Nominated Candidates

As nominations have closed, here is the definitive list of validly nominated PCC candidates, as published by the Police Area Returning Officers. This is what goes on the Ballot paper. It includes the impact of 2 withdrawals of nominated candidates, and for each area there is a link to the official source, most of which are actual Statements by Returning Officers, so don’t click on them unless you want to download a file.

We don’t have statements from all candidates, but neither does the official ChooseMyPCC website – but we include links to their areas pages below, as well as for YourNextPCC.com and PoliceElections.com who are useful sources of information for people researching candidates or deciding how to vote.
