This article which talks about the UN Poll Observers wondering how the US can possibly keep voter fraud away without asking for ID talks about ways other countries vote. Here is a quote:

"In The Gambia, a country in West Africa, each voter is given exactly one marble, which they place in one of the large marble collecting jars that are set up for each candidate.

"The polls workers are listening because when the marble goes into the jar, there's a ding. And if there are two dings, maybe somebody came in with extra marbles in their pocket, so they call the police," she said.

Asked how Gambians do a recount with the marble-based voting system, McCormick said, "I have no idea."
