Here's how it's done in Norway:
Every Norwegian (legal) citizen receives a letter in advance of the various elections, and in that letter there's general information of how to go ahead and vote, where you can vote, when, etc. as well as a specific voting ID slip that you need to bring with you in order to be allowed to vote. There is no such thing as needing to be registered in a party in order to vote. Being a citizen is enough.

Then you go to whichever place (library, city hall, school etc.) closest to you that is now temporarily set up to hold voting booths, and so on. Then you enter one of them, and you close the entrance point by way of curtains, as anonymity is important when voting. It looks a little like this:

You pick one slip from whichever party it is you want to vote for, and you choose a name. Fold the voting slip in two, and then put it into the sealed voting slip container:

No electronics that can "accidentally" glitch out needed...

I didnt vote this year because I moved to a different county right before the registration deadline, which is about a month prior to elections. Although I re-registered online, because I moved missed the deadline, I would have had to travel 1 1/2 hours one way to vote, and this was not possible.

How long do the results take?

So on election day the voting results keep pouring in (constant news coverage of course), and late in the evening you tend to know where it's headed (which parties get what % etc.) But normally in the morning the next day, the result is available though it can take maybe another day for the results to get fully finished, with adjustments and such, although by that time things are a done deal anyways.

That is basically how it is done in Greece too.

Also in Czech Republic. Really one of the dumbest "inventions" of US election machine is the need to register for it.
