The Police Commissioner elections should add to LAB victories across the board on Thursday

November 11th, 2012

If it goes the way of national polling then then 26 of the 41 of the new commissioners will be Labour

Thursday is a very big election day across England and Wales with the exception of London.

As well as the Corby, Manchester Central and Cardiff S by-elections, there’s biggest mayoral election outside London in Bristol.

On top of that there are the first elections for the 41 new Police and Crime Commissioner posts.

Thanks to some excellent work by Andrea we have aggregated general election data from each of the policy authority areas where there will be voting. The following are some predictions based on current national polling.
