There is (was?) a show here in Canada callled "Speakers Corner" where folks could go into a booth, put in some coins and say whatever they want with the possibility of your rant/comment/question being played on the show.

Because, for some unknown reason, the western nations decided the democracy requires a secret ballot where no one can know who you voted for, to protect your safety of course, it has nothing to do with making it impossible to prove vote tampering in most cases.
and again, it's not the method of voting that's suspect, it's the method of vote tallying. Hand counts in the US are doing basically in secret a few well placed media might get in there, but not the public. Digital vote tallying is also suspect as we learned in the 2000 and 2004 elections.
It's interesting that the ones shouting about the big ticket items don't also shout about the local and regional elections (much easier to rig).
