Typically you are assigned a bidder number and then you write down the amount you bid on a sheet of paper listed by the item along with you bid and the auction lasts for a certain amount of time. Another way is sealed bids where the amounts are not seen by other bidders and are put like into an envelope.

The ones I've been to , each item had a sheet of paper attached to it. You wrote your name down and how much your bid was for. Then other people did the same by raising your bid, usually by a predetermined amount,
This went on for a set amount of time, then the highest bid won that item, all bids where visiable at all times, and you could rebid a often as time allowed
Some auctions where only for hours, some for weeks, depending on the organization running them.

this is the way the vast majority of them work. Putting hard working auctioneers out of work.
