The general election will take place in Thailand tomorrow, February 2, and throughout the country there are a total of 93,305 polling stations with 6,671 of these sites spread across Bangkok.

Polling stations are only open from 8am – 3pm and are usually located in schools and local area offices and buildings.

Below is a link to a map showing where the voting stations are located throughout Bangkok – the map may be incomplete but it is a good starting point for those who want to see where voting is taking place plus I suspect it will be updated as the day goes on.

In March, a spike in virus cases was linked to a boxing match at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium.
