South Korea votes

South Korean election officials sort voting papers for ballot counting in the parliamentary elections at a gymnasium in Seoul on Wednesday. South Korean voters turned out in force on April 15 to back President Moon Jae-in's handling of the coronavirus epidemic, putting on compulsory face masks and gloves to give his Democratic party a parliamentary majority according to exit polls.
