Actually, this is perfectly true and it continues to be true in many small towns around the world where elections are held out in the open. This can be with marbles as noted, or by counting a show of hands as we are all familiar with at public meetings.
The use of the secret ballot is a relatively new development and seems to have gone hand in hand with secret societies and political elections where voters have been bullied by political “gangs” and would be subject to revenge for voting in a manner contrary to the gang’s wishes— therefore unable to exercise their true judgment without great risk potentially being involved.
The cure is often as bad as the disease, for now we have the secret ballot combined with the Diebold Machine which has apparently modernized the traditional “machines” used by political parties and made an honest election impossible and the election committees totally unaccountable.
I happen to agree with the writer of this comment— while recognizing that people who cast contrary votes may be subject to “pay back” they will also have the certainty that their vote counted for something and wasn’t just erased with the touch of a button. They will also unavoidably become aware of the value of their vote and also aware of how other people are voting and why.
This seems to me to be an excellent way to restore honest elections and accountable election committees.
The “secret ballot” like many other aspects of our government has become an unquestioned sacred cow— so much so that we no longer think about it and the reasons it was adopted in the first place.
It was adopted to let people escape duress caused by political corruption and instead of ending corruption only has allowed it to go underground and fester.
Time to make a change and enforce freedom and accountability. If any gangs want to cause trouble for people over the way they in good conscience vote, our answer should not be to draw a veil over their honest opinion and act of decision, but instead to make such political gangsterism a thing of the past.

While you are at it, maybe you can provide some suggestions on how to expose the impostors to the rest of the world?
Food for thought?
