PCC elections in Leicestershire: Candidates want to hear your questions on crime
With just over a week to go before people vote for their first elected police and crime commissioner, we are inviting readers to send in the questions they want the three candidates to answer.
Whether you would like to know what the candidates would do about an issue in your neighbourhood, or how they would tackle an area of general concern, we want to hear from you.
We will print a selection of the questions – and the candidates' responses – next week.
The Conservatives have chosen recently retired Air Chief Marshall Sir Clive Loader, a parish councillor in Wing, Rutland, as their candidate.
The Labour Party has selected assistant Leicester mayor Sarah Russell.
Leicester community worker and businessman Suleman Nagdi is standing as an independent.
The three are busy on the campaign trail, visiting towns, villages and city neighbourhoods to encourage people to vote on Thursday, November 15.
Councillor Russell said: "The more opportunities people have to understand what the candidates stand for, the better.
"We want people to be able to make the most informed choices they can when they are able to use their votes."
Mr Nagdi said: "The turnouts for the hustings we have had so far have been reasonably good and that is very positive.
"We have to encourage people to use their votes.
"It is something which people in other parts of the world aspire to and people have died for in the past."
Sir Clive said: "I will be glad to answer readers' questions.
"I have said all along that anything the media can do to excite interest and ensure we have as high a turnout as possible on November 15 is very gratefully received."
The Home Office last month launched a nationwide advertising campaign to increase awareness of the election.
The Electoral Reform Society has predicted that as few as 18.5 per cent of electors nationwide could vote.
Those findings have been mirrored in a poll by the Leicester Mercury.
