Pheu Thai Instructions on How to Avoid a Spoiled Ballot

The sign reads: Watch out for the spoiled ballot – Vote Pheu Thai – Mark X in the box beside the word Pheu Thai Party on the party list MP vote ballot (the green card) – Pheu Thai Party – No.1 – Please vote both person and party

[This refers to the “tricky ballots” for the elections that were printed in such a way that the Pheu Thai logo is nearly invisible.
It is thought this would cause some elderly people to miss seeing the Pheu Thai logo and miscast their vote. The other fear–addressed by this poster–is that people would mistakenly cast their vote in the box immediately to the right of the “1,” thus resulting in a “spoiled” and discounted vote.]
