The Australian voting system is how the elections of the various state governments as well as the federal government are put into power. The commission office was once held in high regard, now its a shell of its former self. The Electoral Commission oversees the counting of the votes and the rolls that place people for voting day.
Government employees at the AEC are being held accountable for the really loose work ethic around transporting the votes to the counting house. Recently in 2013 the system showed its flaws with nearly 2ooo votes missing triggering a re-election.
