Thai election by the numbers


We may never get full data on Thailand’s 2 February 2014 poll, so this is an attempt to make some sense of what is available. First, a health warning. These are unofficial figures leaked from the Election Commission. There have been three versions over the past three days, all slightly different. But the variations are not enough to affect this very simple analysis. The figures show the turnout, valid votes, spoiled ballot papers, and the number who checked the “no vote” box in the constituency poll (I’ll call these last two combined the “protest vote”). The data exclude the 9 southern provinces where voting was not completed. They probably do not include the advance voting and the overseas vote.
