Of course, one problem in the United States is the low level of civic involvement in such things as elections. We assume "professionals" will take care of these things and there isn't really a tradition of lots of volunteers being available for this task. Most of the election day volunteers at my polling place are senior citizens who probably couldn't handle the papers and see well enough to process a hundred paper ballots with scribble marks on them.
