Reference: Bhutan elects National Council, Bangkok Post, January 1, 2007
The photograph included with the article about elections in Bhutan (Bhutan elects National Council, Bangkok Post, January 1, 2007) shows Bhutanese citizens holding identity cards lined up to cast their vote in a place identified as "a polling station in Jaigaon, 45 km from the Indo-Bhutanese border". Kindly note that Jaigaon is in India on the border with Bhutan and across Bhutan Gate from the Bhutanese border town of Phuntsholing. Bhutanese citizens in Phuntsholing do cross over to Jaigaon to make international phone calls and to use the internet but it is not likely that they would go there to cast their vote.
