In the process of democratic government, the secret ballot is one of, if not THE most valuable tool


Without the Secret Ballot, you and I are deprived of our right to make the UN-inhibited choice of whom we want to govern us. Without the carefully guarded right of the Secret Ballot, tyrants and bullies can rule. So, why should you, I, the media, anyone, seek to find out what anyone else has voted, EXCEPT by assessing majority vote via the Ballot Box? In many instances, here in Australia, we have seen representatives of the mass media, standing outside the Voting Venue, seeking to ask individuals what they voted. There reason, if we want to be honest, is only to increase their viewers.
