The office of the Election Commission has established four routes via which members of the public can alert election officials to any irregularities or electoral fraud, such as cash giveaways or the free delivery of gifts.
The office said that it would pay cash incentives of up to a million baht to anyone who provided information that was helpful in its investigations into potential irregularities by political parties or candidates.
The public can contact election officials via the “Ta Sapparot” app, which can be downloaded from the EC’s website, the App Store, or Google Play, by calling the phone numbers 0-21418860, 0-21418579, and 0-21418858, by contacting the provincial election offices or the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, or by calling the 1444 hotline.
The EC’s office has pledged that the informants’ identities will be kept secret.
In the meantime, today (Friday), the office began shipping voting papers via Thailand Post’s parcel service to Thai embassies and consular offices in 66 countries and 94 cities.
There are two distinct ballot kinds. Party-list elections are held on the purple ballots, whereas constituency elections are held on the green ballots.
115,139 Thai citizens who living overseas have already registered to vote.
