16. Here is how *I* would steal an election (not that I ever would). Please tell me this would not work.

Before election day, fill-out a whole stack of ballots for your candidates.

On election day, have a scanning machine that is placed NEAR the polling place, but not actually IN the polling place.

Throughout the day, periodically scan the ballots into the machine, a few votes per hour.

Maybe throw-in a few votes for the competition, just so it looks good.

At the end of the day, run over to the polling place and randomly cross-off the correct number of additional people from the books that indicate who voted.

Now, please, PLEASE tell me this plan is somehow fatally flawed and that it cannot be THAT easy.
