Thailand’s Election Commission chairman Apichart Sukhagganond said that he is satisfied with the advance voting which largely went on smoothly throughout the country Sunday.
Apichart said this at a venue for the advance voting in Bangkok while he was witnessing the closing of the ballot box at 03:00 p.m. local time. In Bangkok, the ballot boxes would be kept at district offices and watched by guards around the clock with the help from closed- circuit cameras.
Political parties might seek permission from the directors of all districts to send their men to join watching the ballot boxes, if they so wished, Apichart said.
The advance voting was held on June 26 from 08:00 a.m. to 03:00 p.m. local time ahead of the general election to be conducted on July 3. Out of some 47.3 million, about 2.6 million eligible voters across the country registered for the advance balloting, according to data from the Election Commission.
