Proving the ballot boxes are strong and tamper proof is just one way Election Commission officials are trying to encourage people to turn up and vote in Sunday's charter referendum.

On Tuesday, commissionner Somchai Srisutthiyakorn briefed the media on the EC's readiness for the poll. He also demonstrated the sturdiness of the ballot boxes by repeatedly dropping one of them on the floor.

On the fourth drop, Mr Somchai looked shocked, while the reporters burst into laughter. Watch the video to find out why.
