Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's a fair system.  Paper ballots and there are plenty of people from all the parties to make sure there's no hanky-panky

Actually it's pretty easy to game. You get yourself a few hundred spare ballot boxes, stuff them with a heavily slanted selection of the votes you want, and deliver them to the counting centre.

In theory ballots are numbered to guarantee this doesn't happen, but in practice I don't think the numbers are checked unless there's a good reason to check them.
