Ballot boxes readied ahead of vote

Officials are preparing for Sunday's parliamentary elections in Thailand after months of massive and sometimes violent anti-government demonstrations. Poll workers checked ballots and other materials inside the boxes which will be distributed to various polling stations early Sunday morning. Despite anti-government protests and recommendations from the country's election commission, the government is pushing ahead with the elections. Opposition leaders have called on supporters to boycott the vote but not interfer with voting Analysts say Sunday's poll will likely not change the situation. Extra security forces will be deployed across the country to control any violence. Ten people have died and at least 577 have been wounded in politically related violence since late November. No one was injured in the latest incident, a drive-by shooting overnight at an anti-government camp near a polling station.
