SEOUL, March 10 (Korea Bizwire) — Election day in South Korea was marked by a plethora of red voting stamps on social media.
As soon as polls opened in the presidential election on Wednesday, voters shared photos on Instagram, Facebook and other online communities to show that they had voted.
Many of them took photos of red voting stamps on the back of their hands or in front of the voting booth.
In the morning, many people posted about how they woke up early or spent the night up before heading out to vote.
Some people chose to receive voting certificates instead of putting red stamps on the back of their hands, putting on plastic gloves at the voting booth to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Others brought separate papers for the red stamp or made special ‘voting verification cards’ decorated with their favorite characters.
