Overseas Koreans have already begun casting
their ballots for the April 13th general election. Voting began at South Korea’s Consulate in
Auckland, New Zealand at four A.M., Korea time, and will continue for six-days at one-hundred-ninety-eight
polling stations in one-hundred-13 countries around the world.
Korea’s National Election Commission says nearly 155-thousand people, or nearly eight
percent of some two million eligible citizens living abroad, have registered to vote.
Registered voters are required to carry a valid ID with a photo such as a passport or
a resident registration card and can vote in any country where the voting booths are
available. The commission is advising overseas voters
to refer to its homepage for more information.
