The EC guarantees that ballots can be checked to eliminate voter fraud

The Election Commission (EC) has stated that ballot authenticity can be verified in order to prevent electoral fraud in the upcoming general election on May 14, 2023.

The EC will print 57 million ballot sheets for 52 million eligible voters in the upcoming election, according to EC Deputy Secretary-General Kittipong Boriboon. He stated that these ballots are intended to be verified by the texture or color of the paper, but he declined to provide further details to avoid information being misused.

The format of the constituency ballot, according to Kittipong, will only include boxes for marking the MP candidate’s campaign number. The party-list election ballot will include information such as the party’s campaign number, name, logo, and voting box. He noted that the ballots differ from those used in the 2019 election, which was a single-ballot system.

Kittipong also clarified the issue of ballot color, stating that the committee had not reached a final decision on the matter. He stressed that the colors used in promotional videos are only for educational purposes to inform the general public about the dual-ballot system and will not be used in the upcoming election.
