As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

You cannot fake : the bow is transparent, one representative of every party is witnessing each vote, a registry is signed by all people who vote, you HAVE to find as many signatures than envelopes. A little city have one vote office open, bigger cities have more.

Then, yes, each enveloppe is counted, opened, and the count is made by hand under the scrutinize of the same representatives of each party. And since France is a pretty nice democratic country, fairness prevails.

Not trying to trick out parts of the population to favor one candidate against the other. France even try to allows right of vote to foreign people that works in France for a long time without being a French citizen.

Can the USA dare to do the same ?
