About the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner election

Elections for the post of Police and Crime Commissioner for the Essex Police Area are held every four years. An election was due to be held in May 2020 but was postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus situation. 

Electors who are eligible to vote at a particular election or referendum will receive a polling card shortly before polling day, telling them where to vote. There are special arrangements for people who cannot get to a polling station to apply for a proxy or postal vote. Further details can be found in the section on postal and proxy voting.
