The Election Commission (EC) has affirmed it is ready for advance voting on Sunday, for which about 2.6 million people have registered. Among them, more than 900,000 will cast advance ballots in Bangkok, 110,000 from overseas and the rest from the provinces. Equipment required for holding early voting has already been distributed to designated polling stations across the country, EC secretary-general Jarungvith Phumma told media on Friday. However, Nat Laosisawakul, deputy secretary-general of the EC urged candidates and their canvassers to stay away from voting venues. "That particular act could be seen as an attempt to get money in return," said Mr Nat.
