Tomorrow sees polling stations open for a by-election for a new West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, following the sudden death of Bob Jones in June.
Some political commentators have forecast that turnout will be unprecedentedly low for the by-election, which is set to cost around £3.7 million. During the last PCC election, only 12% of those eligible to vote did so at a time when there was much publicity across the region, and country.
So who is standing? The candidates are:
- Les Jones (Conservative)
- David Jamieson (Labour)
- Ayoub Khan (Lib Dem)
- Keith Rowe (UKIP)
So, will you be going out to exercise your democratic right to vote tomorrow?
