Apparently 30 million people voted early (we call it pre-poll)! And they are
expecting 1million today. From TV footage, I did notice, they offer electronic
voting in several
languages and drive through.

Not sure how many voters there are in Oz, but with a population of under
20million, our exercise pales.

On the other hand when India goes to its national  polls, it is a mind boggling
season - electronic voting is used - the last election was in 2004.

# No. of ballot boxes used : 25,25,595
# Paper used for printing of ballot paper : 8000 Metric Ton
