Ballot box stuffing is dealt with using the New Hampshire hand count system.

By the way, ballot box stuffing is a horrific risk with mail-in voting; note the
sleight-of-hand we're seeing, "we match the signatures; any voters with
non-matching sigs are notified." Hello? The stuffing is with the MATCHING sigs,
not the non-matches; Occasional and irregular voters easily have votes
counterfeited and voted in their name, and this is already documented in New
Jersey. The sigs being compared, by the way, aren't physical sigs, they are
database images, easily imported and exported, never even authenticated as the
real sig, and the "match" is a dog and phony show much like L&A tests. (It
doesn't matter if a real person sits at a computer screen and checks yes and
no; the real issue is access and alterations to the yes/no database.)

"Other known hazards" are relatively easily dealt with, but since you don't
specify what you are imagining, it's hard to to refute whatever is in your

Government is the servant of the people, and not the master of them. The
people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right

know. We insist on remaining informed so that we may retain control over the
instruments of government we have created.
