North Koreans vote in ‘no-choice’ parliamentary elections

North Koreans are voting to elect the country’s rubber-stamped parliament, the second such election since Kim Jong-un took power. Voting for the Supreme People’s Assembly is mandatory and there’s no choice of candidates. Any kind of dissent is unheard of.

Turnout is always close to 100% and approval for the governing alliance is unanimous. North Korea is an isolated state, ruled by the Kim family dynasty. Citizens are required to show complete devotion to the family and its current leader. On Election Day, the entire population aged 17 or older must come out and vote. Once it’s your turn, you receive a ballot paper with just one name on it. There’s nothing to fill in, no boxes to tick. You take that paper and put it into the ballot box, which is located in the open.
