Still? I honestly don't remember the last federal election but our recent provincial one it was a paper ballot but it got inserted into a device that looked like a big photocopier that I figured was a counting machine/ballot storage box.Like I say we have a tried and true system that works. Ours are all paper ballots and all counted by hand. All recieved by voters after showing ID They could do them same down there, if they wanted.
I'm not sure I draw a straight line between 'property of the state' and 'autopsy'. The coroner/medical examiner can order a post mortem but it is done so by warrant (in Ontario anyway). All sorts of deaths under medical care happen every day without the involvement of the coroner/ME.Currently in Canada your body does become property of the State upon your death, that is how they are able to order autopsies.
In Nova Scotia it is a implied consent to donating your organs, you have to opt out if you wish otherwise now. I suspect many other jurisdictions shall go that way as time progresses as well.
If the cops get a search warrant for your car or house it doesn't mean they own it.
