3. All depends on the audits.
If the audits are insufficient or not required, the opscans are just as easy to rig as the touch screens. Probably easier because people have a false sense of security because they voted on paper. I'm not up on the audits for the opscans around the country, but I don't think very many places even have audits and when they do have them, it's usually for a hand count of about 1%, which would most likely detect about 0% fraud. Without hand counting of ballots at some point, whether for the whole election or for ROBUST audits, there's just no way to have a democracy. End of story.
