Voters go to the polls to cast their ballots in the elections for Bangkok governor and city councillors on Sunday. This is the first time in nine years that Bangkokians have been able to cast a ballot to choose the capital's leadership.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) expects 70% of those eligible to vote to turn out for the elections. Unofficial poll results are expected about 9pm Sunday.
