Bangkok Post:  Millions of Indians turned out to cast ballots in a state election Wednesday in the world’s biggest vote since the coronavirus emerged, with booths packed out and many ignoring government advice on wearing masks and social distancing.  Some 70 million people are eligible to vote in Bihar, an impoverished eastern state governed by an alliance that includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which has promised a free vaccine for every person in the state if it wins.  The election comes as India, the world’s second most-infected nation, has recorded almost eight million virus cases.  Voting in Bihar has been split across three days — Wednesday, November 3 and November 7 — to reduce crowding at booths.  Coronavirus patients will be allowed to cast a ballot under the supervision of health authorities.
