Let's All Commit Some Election Fraud

shsilver reports here that an electronic voting machine reported a massively wrong total in an Ohio precinct in favor of Bush. I'm tempted to believe that this was a machine error rather than an attempt to cheat since the error was so large, but it never looks good.

Meanwhile, in Michigan, entertaining things were occurring with absentee ballots in Detroit. Here's the news report which emphasizes that the Republican vote challengers did something that they shouldn't have done and this is a report from a Republican who was actually there who claims that the Democrats were doing things that were much worse.

Do you think there's any chance of getting the sensible people together on both sides and producing a system that makes it a bit more difficult to cheat?

(Right now, the Votematic machines look pretty good to me.)
