Two-day early voting for April general elections kicks off Updated: 2020-04-10 07:17:06 KST

South Korea has just started two days of early voting for the April 15th general election.
The National Election Commission says eligible voters can visit their local polling station between 6 AM and 6 PM on Friday and Saturday.
The voter turnout as of 9AM has been counted at 1.5-1 percent, which is the highest percentage ever recorded for during that time period of early voting in Korea.
By region, Jeollanam-do province had the highest voter turnout while Daegu had the lowest.
After presenting a valid ID, voters will receive two ballot papers: one to pick candidates for their specific districts, and one to choose candidates under the nationwide proportional representation system.
With this year's election coming as the country battles the COVID-19 outbreak, voters are required to wear masks and gloves, and their temperatures will be checked.
They also need to stay at least a meter apart when in line and refrain from talking inside polling stations.
