5. The fudging come in at the collection point
The individual polls can be accurate, the fudge gets thrown in at the Secretary of State, when all the memory chips are compiled.

In Michigan, in Ann Arbor, poll workers certify and post a true copy of the tabulation at each precinct, and the political parties make note of it. So it can be checked...at that location.

But what about the much smaller townships? What about the Secretary of State? What if only selected local elections are jiggered?

Our election system is far too complex, depending solely on the integrity of the people running the process, to be theft-proof.
