South Korean diplomatic missions in the U.S. will soon begin to accept applications for absentee voting for the presidential election slated for March 9 next year.
The Consulate General in Los Angeles and other offices in the U.S. will receive applications starting Sunday until January 8.
Eligible South Korean voters residing in the U.S. can visit a local consulate to request absentee ballots. It can also be done online (http://ova.nec.go.kr or http://ok.nec.go.kr) and through email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Absentee voters include those who will not be in South Korea between March 4, when early voting starts, and the March 9 election day.
Overseas voting will take place from February 23 to 28.
