7. Utterly silly
What's really pathetic is there are ways of registering and counting the votes that would require gigantic conspiracies to effectively cheat, and would allow the public to watch the vote totals rise as votes come in and are counted, which makes statistical analysis much easier, to the point where problems are literally visible to the public in real-time.

And we waste our time debating the subtleties minor tweaks to horribly, fatally flawed systems instead.
