- West Country (E)
Wiltshire was the first county in the country to declare in the early hours of this morning, where turnout was 15.8%.
It would have been better if more people voted. There are several reasons why people didn't come out to vote - they didn't understand what the job is. They didn't know who the candidates were and couldn't make a judgment. And then, depressingly, there were a lot of people while we were out on the street saying 'I don't (vote) for anything'.
It is a new system and people have emailed and contacted us saying that they didn't know enough about the candidates in order to be able to make a choice. Obviously, that's something which I have got no control over.
As Wiltshire was the only police force to count overnight, the man the county elected as the new PCC became the first in Britain.
We take a look at the six candidates standing for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner in Wiltshire.
