The election took place on Thursday, 6 May, and the turnout to vote was 33.7 per cent across the county.
No candidate received more than 50 per cent of the vote on first preference, so the count moved on to the second preference. Clive Grunshaw (Labour) and Andrew James Snowden (Conservative) went through to the second count where Andrew was eventually announced as the winner.
The candidates were as follows:
Andrew took to social media to thank Lancashire for voting him as the PCC for the county.
