Wokingham PPC election set for November 150

Each of the 41 police force areas in England and Wales, outside of London, will directly-elect a commissioner. The commissioners will be accountable for how crime is tackled in their police force area. PCCs will aim to ensure that the police deliver an effective and efficient service.
In order to vote in the PCC election, residents must be on the electoral register by Wednesday October 31. Residents who are unable to get to a polling station on November 15, can also apply to vote by post or by proxy.
