Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I have yet to see a "clean" election in any country.  I believe I have a better chance of seeing the tooth fairy.

Hm... what's your problem, off the top of my head, with the 2005 German elections?

And again, are you incapable of seeing gradations in cleanliness?

...or for that matter, what is your problem with Chávez's recall referendum vote?

I'll answer both of your questions with a question - Do you honestly believe that either of these elections were fair?  If so, I have a large (actually it's the longest in the world) railroad that I'd like to sell you.

What precisely is your argument against the 'fairness' of these elections? Even leaving aside all of the other arguments, what would it take for an election to be deemed fair by you?

Because yeah, I'd suggest that those elections were fair or close to it. Australia and NZ's elections are also fair as I understand the concept (much as I may disagree with the outcome in Aus).
