CEC, please fix the process of voting on election day.

Finally we have CEC who is committed to hold free and fair election. This can only happen if we copy the process of voting as done in advanced countries. Voting hall or room should have no reps of candidates DURING voting time. Lines should be outside the hall and every voter goes inside one by one. Names of the voters are crossed off as they vote. No one is allowed to vote if their name is not on the list. In Canada every voter is mailed a voting card with their name on it and the name of the location where to go and vote. EMULATE FOR SUCCESS.
