45. as Febble noted, it's already being done
On election night, I'll have a spreadsheet with a couple of polling composites (as available) and some past returns. When the first exit-poll-based tabs come in, I'll compare them with the other sources. Then, as vote totals arrive, I'll be in a position to judge what is genuinely suspicious and what isn't.

{For instance, in 2004, Florida looked more suspicious than Ohio even though the Ohio exit poll discrepancy was more than twice as large.)
