4. Software that is designed to commit fraud is usually programmed
to erase it's own code after the damage is done.

For example: Code says "alter vote results to favor candidate (A) 59% of the time." The code
says "At 6:52 (depending on the polling place close time) erase "fraudProgam.exe".

Illegitimate logins can be rigged to either bypass the legitimate ports or modify the login prior to exit.

Only the clumsiest of programmers would have installed fraudulent software and simply left it on the
voting machine.
