The Central Election Commission says an estimated 19.88 million people are eligible to vote in December's four national referendums.


The election commission says the number of people eligible to vote on the referendum questions is higher than the number eligible to vote in the 2020 presidential election because the voting age for referendums is 18, compared to 20 for the last presidential election.


And commission chairman Lee Jin-yong says the number of eligible voters could still be updated in the coming weeks.


According to Lee, 17,479 polling stations will be set up islandwide for the 18 December referendum and people can see if they are eligible to vote and find their designated polling station by going to a special section on the Ministry of the Interior's website.


The vote was originally scheduled to take place on 28 August, but was postponed to prevent the potential spread of the coronavirus.
