If a candidate achieves 50% of the vote at the first stage, then they will be elected the Mayor for the West Midlands Combined Authority. If no-one achieves 50%, then the two candidates who received the highest number of votes will be carried forward to the second stage. The ballot papers from the other candidates are then redistributed in accordance with their second preference votes. Any for the top two candidates are added to their first stage totals. The candidate with the most first and second preference votes will then be elected as Mayor for the West Midlands Combined Authority. If a second stage is required, the top two candidates will be confirmed and results will appear here as they are declared locally. A full breakdown of the rejected votes will be available from each local authority.
