Conservative candidate Andy Street is the close second favourite in the odds at 11/10

Andy Street is the current Mayor of West Midlands and he announced that he would be standing once again to be re-elected earlier this year in what would be his third term.

The contest looks extremely close with a different polling set given by YouGov putting Street as the winner compared to that Redfield & Wilton vote we referenced earlier.

YouGov's polls show that it's too close to call with just a 2% split between the top two and it could well be the tightest run for the Mayoral seat across the 2024 elections.

Other elections are set to take place tomorrow with more Mayoral seats up for grabs

Further elections will be taking place on Thursday with 10 mayors being voted on as well as more that 2,600 local councillors across the UK.

The East Midlands is completely different to the West with Labour heavy favourites in the East with Labour candidate Claire Ward the massive favourite at 1/6.

Tees Valley is the only Mayoral market that can be bet on that has a Conservative candidate as the favourite with Ben Houchen 4/9 to be voted as the Tees Valley Mayor on Thursday evening.
