Data Location


The Election Statistics System of the National Election Commission in the Republic of Korea provides data on the Web regarding statistical results of presidential, congressional, and various local elections. However, the dataset is not downloadable, and there is no way to access the data programatically. Even though there is one WebAPI only for accessing real-time results during the election, it cannot be utilized without the appropriate permission.

All the data in the system are copyrighted and cannot be published or used for profit purposes.
