It could increase the chance of vote-buying and vote coercion. Frankly, I
think this argument is weak in light of all the other ways the same thing
could happen (esp absentee ballots). But it's not a war worth fighting
right now. Trust me. See the OVC History page going back to 2-13-01 and
the concept paper I gave to Sacramento County. I wrangled with people for a
long time on this one.
