One minor point on an historical point.  The statement "In the US, the
use of secret ballots followed their adoption in Australia and the
United Kingdom in the 1870's ...." .  I would suggest "Secret ballots,
although not always required, have been in use in America since
colonial times.  The Australian Ballot, one which is guarantees all
ballots to be uniform in appearance because it is printed and
distributed by the government, was adopted in throughout most of the
US the late 1800's."
This is true... I meant "official use" I suppose... as in mandated by law.
