11. Election fraud
I mentioned election fraud in the OP but didn't say much about it.

It is hoped (and I believe it will happen) that four factors will counteract election fraud tomorrow and overcome it:

1) Massive turnout and a landslide victory for the Democrats.

2) An organized system of poll watching (which we have here in Maryland, but I'm not sure to what extent other states have it) the purpose of which is to identify and call attention to suspected fraud as soon as it is seen.

3) Obtaining counts at precincts at the time of poll closing (a part of the poll watching process), so as to preclude central tabulators from changing results.

4) Exit polls of close races (analyzed in conjunction with pre-election polls), so as to identify serious discrepancies between the expected and actual results.
