It’s Election Day!

It’s Wednesday, June 2nd. No school because it’s Election Day!  Woo hoo!  It’s a non-presidential voting year, but it’s an important day nonetheless (hey, we aren’t gonna argue with a day off).  🙂

For the past few weeks, there has been non-stop campaigning.  I haven’t a clue what the different positions are though.  But it’s been fun (and annoying) to see campaigning – Korean style!

SAM_1913 Trucks like these are all over the city.  They always prominently feature the candidate and a number.  Most of them are blaring some sort of pop music with the candidates names as part of the lyrics.  These trucks are loud and they have no problem driving in circles around the schools – while school is in session.  My kids go crazy when they hear the trucks passing by.



Many of the trucks carry their faithful campaign helpers.  They always wear matching uniforms (with white gloves).  If the truck is in motion, many times you’ll see them in the back waving and bowing to everyone.  Otherwise, the trucks will park at a busy intersection and they get out and perform a dance routine. 



I saw these ladies on my way to school.  This is a very busy intersection – and in fact, every corner of the intersection had somebody’s campaign people setting up camp.  These ladies bowed to oncoming traffic – about every 15 to 20 seconds.  That’s some dedication.
