Watch: Man protests in Spain wearing snorkel and flippers to vote in general elections

The temperatures in Spain can get extremely high in the summer and many were unhappy to have elections in the middle of it - like this man in swimwear.

Update:

Spain held its general elections on Sunday and several citizens were upset about the timing, considering the extremely high temperatures throughout the country at this time of the year. One man even showed up to vote in a snorkel and flippers in protest of having to vote at a time when a good percentage of the country is typically on vacation. High temperature alerts were issued on Sunday, with the hottest areas reacing 104 degrees Farenheit (40 Celsius) and 102 (39C) in provinces.
