Parliamentary elections were held in North Korea on 8 October 1962. Only one candidate was presented in each constituency, all of which were selected by the Workers' Party of Korea, although some ran under the banner of other parties or state organisations to give an appearance of democracy.[1] Voter turnout was reported to be 100%, with 100% voting in favour of the candidates presented.[2]
