It occurs to me that a few things could be added to the US voting system to enhance it and make it more predictable in logistics.
Yes it would make for more cost and man-hours, but the results would be less surprising and disruptive.
1 - Redundant voting. Electronic and paper. Not at the same time either.
2 - Automatic recounts.
3 - Automatic appeals by the courts. To eliminate the 'surprise' of the losers requesting such.
4 - Very strong and harsh laws guaranteeing prison time for ANYONE caught and convicted of manipulating the voting system.
