Your response and a few others above it reinforce
my point: why, really, does the US insist on machine
counting? Who wants it, and why? It can't be true
that people honestly can't wait for a few hours for
something as important as the result of a national
election. Is it that the desire to make election day
into good TV overshadows the need to do it right?

>Any voting station has a limited number of voters.

The memories.

I've forgotten how many registered voters were assigned to the polling station.
By noon, all of the registered voters had done so. By 12:05, all of the votes
had been tallied, and triple checked.

The polling station still had to remain open until an hour after sunset, to
ensure that there would be no stragglers coming in from the farms.

In canada, we use the Paper ballot hand counted for federal and provincial (=~ state) votes.. Pretty simple, but there's only one (or two) things to vote on.

For municipal voting, we use paper ballots with optical scanners for a more complicated vote. Thus, the results are available almost instantly and we have voter-verified paper ballots for verification and recount.
