Polling stations will be open today (November 15) between 7am and 10pm for the election of Police and Crime Commissioners.
In Sussex there are five candidates.
• Tony Armstrong – UKIP
• Katy Elizabeth Bourne – The Conservative Party Candidate
• Ian Chisnall – Independent
• Godfrey Daniel – Labour Party Candidate
• David Rogers – Liberal Democrat
Electors will be asked to select a first and second choice. Should a candidate fail to get more than 50 per cent of the first preference votes polled, the second preference votes will be used to decide which of the two highest polling candidates should be elected.
