On May 2, voters will go to the polls to choose who they want to lead the six-council Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. The elected Metro Mayor brings together the local authority areas of Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral.

The region-spanning role oversees decisions and budgets related to transport, infrastructure investment, culture, and more. Labour's Steve Rotheram is the current incumbent and is campaigning for a third term. He has already announced a series of headline-grabbing pledges.
