Mixed turnout among advance voters

Hundreds of thousands of voters exercised their right to vote in advance over the weekend. During the two days of advance voting, many constituencies saw thousands of ballots cast while there was little activity in opposition-dominated areas.

On Saturday, 306,147 people cast ballots, an Election Commission (EC) source said yesterday. Yesterday's figure was unavailable.

In Suphan Buri, the stronghold of the Chat Thai Party, about 2,000 people voted, fewer than for last year's election, the province's EC director Issara Siangprohdee said. The advance vote in Kanchanaburi saw 50 per cent fewer votes cast.

In Trang, Democrat Chuan Leekpai's home province, advance voting decreased by 30 per cent and in Satun there was a 50 per cent drop.

However, in Narathiwat province the polls were at their most lively with around 80 per cent of registered voters going to the ballot box. In the Northeast, which is dominated by the Thai Rak Thai Party, the polls were lively, as they were in Songkhla and Khon Kaen.
