Scene in Seoul: Election day
It was the local election day today and luckily we didn’t have to go to work. I had to stay up late the night before to read all the literature sent to us about the candidates. I asked for my husband’s opinion several times but we never talked about our choices. I choose the people I vote for like I were choosing a life insurance. I have to spend hours searching for life insurance rates that will give me the best value.
My husband and I went to the voting precinct after lunch. It was just about 20 meters from our apartment complex. There was a short line and we had to wait for 15 minutes before we could vote. It was easy even if we had to select candidates for six different posts and two parties for a total of eight votes. I wasn’t able to take pictures inside the voting precinct since I was thinking of the others waiting in line. This is my third time to participate in the elections in South Korea. When we got out, a lady asked me to answer in an exit poll. I gladly obliged and got free gum. 🙂
