A long line of people stood outside a barber shop in Seodaemun, western Seoul, on Election Day, as the store was designated by district authorities as an official polling station.
Inside the store were partitions set up to provide space for the polling booths while couches were offered for people waiting in line.
Polling locations designated by the National Election Commission for Election Day on Tuesday include commercial shops. (Yonhap)
They are some of the 13,964 voting venues designated by the National Election Commission. The Public Official Election Act states that a public venue can be designated an official polling station to provide vicinity and convenience to voters.
