Don’t drink and vote – 24 hour alcohol ban starts at 6pm

Police are out and about in Thailand’s popular tourist zones warning people that there will be an election alcohol ban starting at 6 tonight, for 24 hours. There will also be a ban next weekend as well.

Nobody appears to have told the police and officials that international tourists don’t vote.

“No selling of alcohol will be allowed from 6 pm today until 6 pm tomorrow (Sunday). Sunday is the pre-voting day when polling stations are open for people unable to vote in their home provinces on voting day, March 24.

Next weekend will be the same – a ban is in place from 6pm, March 23 until 6pm, March 24.
