Yup. Paper voting is the gold standard for democracy.
Paper voting is anonymous, it's physically limited to one vote per person, recounts are easy, it's unhackable, you can check for counterfeit votes through forensics, the boxes can be physically sealed and stored forever in case of disputes etc.
It's the ultimate in transparency as literally anyone can watch a paper vote being counted, and we have centuries of experience on avoiding paper fraud. This is a solved problem.
There is no need of sophisticated fraud schemes:
A dictatorship only needs to make sure only those they want will vote, and, in the end, just ignore the results of calculations and announce the numbers they'd like to get. This way, they may look as popular as desired.
Of course, some countries are more susceptible / immune to this than others, but by now I'm not sure of anything.
