With the U.S. presidential elections only six days away, many local supporters are gearing up for what promises to be one of the most highly anticipated election campaign results in a long while.

The Democrats Abroad ROK invite all Obama supporters to attend an election returns party at the Orange Tree in Haebangcheon on Nov. 5 from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. to watch ``history being made,'' according to a media release.

In a statement issued to The Korea Times, the group said, ``The Orange Tree will be decorated to the hilt as we gather for breakfast and eagerly begin watching the election results as they come in… and watching Senator Obama become President Obama.''

They will have a projector showing the returns on a large screen, as well as several other computers on hand to check other polls and returns throughout the day. ``Lots of activities are planned throughout the day, so please feel free to drop in whenever you can.''

Democrats Abroad ROK is the official branch of the Democratic Party in Korea. Membership continues to grow daily, and all who wish to join are welcome and should get in touch via e-mail to democratsabroadrok@yahoo.com

To get to the Orange Tree, leave exit 2 of Noksapyeong Station, line 6. Walk straight down the road until you reach the first intersection where the road veers off to the left, by the kimchi pots. Walk up that road approximately five minutes. The Orange Tree is on your right, on the second floor, above Indigo restaurant.
