Voting in style

Some voters used their outfit to add colour to yesterday's election.

A man turned heads by showing up at a polling station in a black vest and a pair of black shorts, a costume lately associated with Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt. A photo of the minister in this casual attire one day was disseminated widely on the Internet.

Another voter also attracted much attention by having a flashlight strapped to his forehead.

The flashlight reminded bystanders of a torch-wielding woman who tried to force her way past anti-government protesters to cast an advance vote last Sunday. The woman has since become a celebrity of sorts.
