    Probably painstakingly. There are 24 or 29.2 (if I remember correctly) frames per second, so you film, stop, move the votes, film again, stop, move the votes and repeat the process until all the votes are in the box. The you edit such that on each frame, the votes get closer and closer to the box until they are finally in the box.

    I’m not sure if that’s what they did, but that’s they way I would have done it.
