Keep an Eye on The Ballots...Totemo Muzukashii Desu Yo...

Two days in a row keep an eye on thousands of ballot in KDEI (Indonesian Economic and Trade Office in Taipei) was surely a brand new experience for me.
Day one. With Sinta next to me...everything was under controlled. Well, except for unbelievably complicated final recapitulation^^. But, two pairs of eyes are better than a pair, for sure. I couldn't say that day one's counting method was flawless. It's very fast...but rather made mistakes behind. Hands and mouth have different speed and paces. And the deviation between the counted ballots and the entry were quite significant. All in all, it has troublesome ending.
Day two. Having only myself at the different "polling station"...was extremely hard. Even though the ballot reader was the mediocre-paced one...still, not easy to keep up with. But in my opinion, day two's counting method was much better. The deviation was lower and the results were getting close to accurate. But i couldn't deny that hours by hours, my accuracy was getting lower. My eye sight was getting blurry. In the end, i ended up cross-checking my entry because it didn't match with the counted one. Whew! (*tired)
Off the record :
Talking about the General Election, it can't be separated from electoral fraud. How to minimize the fraud and make sure that the voter voices are saved ? Maybe this can be done. But I doubt that Indonesia can use that "reliable and trustworthy" ballot.
