The wonderful Scaryduck writes on democracy at his overflow site:

You know, in the stone age United Kingdom, we still vote by turning up at some damp church hall and draw a cross on a piece of paper with a pencil. The pencil is tied to the voting booth with a piece of hairy string so you can't steal it, which is about as deep as voter fraud gets around here.
Then, when the polls close, people sit at a long line of tables and count the votes by hand in front of auditors.
Funnily enough, this primitive system seems to work.
We may have shonky teeth and sip tea, but we laugh at your voting machines.
