|SEOUL Air Jordan 1 Shoes For Sale , May 9 (Xinhua) -- The turnout of South Korea's presidential election is widely forecast to hit a record high, reflecting great public interest in the polls triggered by the unprecedented impeachment of former President Park Geun-hye over a corruption scandal.
As of 3 p.m. local time (0600 GMT) Tuesday, the turnout was 63.7 percent, higher than the previous election's 59.3 percent tallied in 2012. This year's electorate of South Korea is 42,479,710 voters.
It was even higher than 61.9 percent recorded in the 1997 presidential election when the voting rate surpassed 80 percent and the presidential power was moved from conservatives to liberals for the first time.
An early voting Air Jordan Shoes For Sale , which was introduced in 2013 and first applied to this year's presidential election, was conducted from May 4-5 with a voting rate of 26.06 percent.

Polls began at 6 a.m. local time (2100 GMT Monday) and would last until 8 p.m. (1100 GMT). The voting was extended by two hours compared with the 2012 election.
The extended voting time and the first introduction of early voting are expected to raise this year's voting rate to a new high.

A total of 525 million cubic meters of water diverted from China's enormous south-to-north water diversion project have flowed into Beijing since December 27, 2014, the day the capital started to receive the diverted water, according to the latest figure provided by the Beijing Water Authority.
The Beijing section is part of the central route of the water diversion project, which begins at Danjiangkou Reservoir in the middle-upper reaches of the Hanjiang River Jordan 12 Shoes For Sale , Central China's Hubei Province. It is designed to supply 9.5 billion cubic meters of water per year on average for some 100 million people in the dry northern regions, including the cities of Beijing and Tianjin, as well as Henan and Hebei provinces, according to the Xinhua News Agency.
However, environmentalists said that the scheme cannot solve the capital's water crisis, as Beijing has been plagued by water shortage problems for over a decade.
Beijing still needs an extra 100 million cubic meters of water this year despite the arrival of the diverted water Jordan 11 Shoes For Sale , Wang Junwen, a senior engineer with the Beijing Water Authority, told the Global Times.
"At present the capital receives an average of 3.45 million cubic waters every day from the water diversion project," Wang said.
Among the 525 million cubic meters of water Beijing received as of early September, 375 million cubic meters are used as drinking water for the some 20 million Beijingers, and the rest goes to the city's reservoirs and rivers Jordan 1 Shoes For Sale , according to Wang.
Over the past decade, Beijing extracted an excess of 500 million cubic meters of underground water each year, and also used 300 million cubic meters of water from neighboring regions, Wang said.
The over-extraction of underground water has caused subsidence and environmental damage in Beijing.
"Beijing has been seeing a growing number of sink holes in its city streets in recent years, and the over-extraction also caused unstable foundations of buildings as well as affecting the growth of plants," Zhang Junfeng Air Jordan 13 For Sale , a water conservancy expert who has been monitoring Beijing's water condition since 1993, told the Global Times.
Beijing has 6,000 wells, but it plans to shut them all down by 2020, according to Xinhua. "However, Beijing is only about to receive a total of 700 million cubic meters of water from the diversion project by the end of this year Air Jordan 12 For Sale , which means that it still lacks about 100 million cubic meters of water," Wang said.
Water resource experts said that the "south water" could only alleviate Beijing's water-shortage temporarily, in the long run, the capital has to control its population growth as well as restructuring its economy.
The water diversion project will take about 15 years to reach its designated goal of diverting about 1.2 billion cubic meters of water to Beijing, as the supporting projects also take several years to complete, said Wang Hao Air Jordan 11 For Sale , a water resources specialist and member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, according to the news portal jiemian.
