Glad you made a good day out of it.
No computer manipulation here. Votes are hand-counted in Canada. I've done a couple of them as a polling clerk, so I have direct experience of the counting process. And no, it is not inefficient. It only takes about half an hour for any one team to do the counting and reporting, political parties are allowed to have scrutineers supervising the process. Results are tabulated very quickly and the networks are calling the election as soon as polls close on the West Coast. It would go faster, but they're not allowed by law to declare the results before voting is actually over for everyone.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
