Thai voters begin to cast their ballots from 8:00 a.m. local time on March 24 morning for the country's first election since the 2014 coup.

More than 93,000 polling stations in 77 provinces will be open until 5 p.m. (1000 GMT). About 51.4 million people are expected to show up.

The election commission has said that the first unofficial results will be available three hours after voting ends.
