Registration ending for overseas voting in S. Korea's presidential election Updated: 2022-01-09 15:50:16 KST

For South Koreans overseas who want to vote in the presidential election coming up in March, the sign-up period is ending.
Online, registration ends at midnight on Saturday the last region left being Hawaii in less than an hour from now.
The government has changed the law to make it easier to register this time but less than ten percent of overseas would-be voters are expected to have signed up compared to 14 percent in the last election.
That would be the the lowest rate seen in an election since the system was first set up in 2012.
As of Thursday, the number registered was a little over 180-thousand.
Voting will take place from February 23rd to the 28th in person at Korean consular offices around the world.
That's a couple of weeks ahead of election day, which is March 9th.
