Retail fraud - police issue not software?

I'm with David Mertz on this one - afterall -
the only thing that is illegal is actually purchasing votes
with physical money, and / or strong arm tactics, and
both of these should be address by law enforcement.

Notice politicians are in the business of "purchasing"
votes by all other means necessary! False promises,
mal-advert's, smears, spin doctoring, etc, etc, are all
legal!!

The bigger threat I perceive is the wholesale fraud -
since introducing machine managed voting introduces
a whole new level of threats, while also providing
opportunities to fix traditional wholesale frauds!

And then being caught and having to face legal
challenges, or using legal challenges to secure
your election.

Not surprising then that politicians are only
likewarm in wanting to remove wholesale frauds
from the equation and leave themselves with
one less viable option to play with!!
