Australia has a preferential voting system and a secret ballot. Secret ballot means that no one is allowed to know whom you vote for. The preferential vote means that when you vote you may if you want to put a number of preferences in a box wit the candidate's name. In effect what this means is that your vote is guaranteed to go somewhere. For example you would like Joe Blow to get the seat because you like his policy, however you Know he hasn't got a snowballs hope in hell, It doesn't matter because you can still vote for him without wasting your vote. And at the same time let the powers that be know that you approve of Joes policies. This is done by placing your preference with each candidate if your number one doesn't get in your vote will go to your number 2 or 3 or 4 if need be. It is the fairest voting system I can imagine. First past the post voting can see a party with 10% approval into government if there are enough parties.
