Overseas Koreans Angry Over Empty Promises on Suffrage

Overseas Koreans Angry Over Empty Promises on Suffrage:

Koreans living abroad are becoming increasingly anxious over lawmakers' failure to provide specific plans regarding their ability to vote.

"We have recently seen a surge of lawmakers visiting the United States since the Election Law was revised in February." said Jeff Lee, a director of the Korean American Federation of Los Angeles, from the costal city's Koreatown.

"Yet, none of them have come up with specific plans to simplify the registration and voting process, which takes a couple of days for many to cast a vote at the nearest Korean consulate or embassy and to counter fraudulent votes when the mail voting system is introduced," Lee said.
