SOME 24,000 THAI EXPATS around the world have so far registered to vote in an upcoming general election.
A total of 24,005 Thai expats, mostly living in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, South Korea and China, among others, have so far registered to vote for MPs in both party-listed mode and constituency-based mode at polling units to be provided in the premises of the Thai embassy or consular office in their host country, deputy Consular Affairs Department director-general Narong Boonsathirawong said today (Mar.29).
The voting process for those Thai expats will be specifically held nearly a couple of weeks ahead of the May 14 general election with all ballots to be transported by air for counting in Thailand, Narong said.
Other Thai expats may follow suit by contacting the Thai embassy or consular office in their host country until April 9.
