TV stations join up to provide real-time Bangkok voting results
The Television Pool of Thailand and eight mainstream TV stations will be joining up to provide real-time results of the Bangkok gubernatorial election on March 3.
The information will be gathered and disseminated by Nation Multimedia Group's Nation Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).
The results will be collected with the support of 10 universities and 21 schools, which will station at least 5,000 students at 6,548 polling booths across the city. The TV stations will be able to report on the results as soon as voting ends. Releasing real-time voting figures is meant to boost transparency as well as ensure a fair and clean election.
