In Australia we put a number next to the candidates name using a pencil. The paper is then dropped in a sealed box. Elections are always held on a Saturday. It takes no more than five minutes to vote. Ballot papers are counted by government officals and candidates (or their representatives) can view the actual counting process.

How simple is that?
