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.

A question with number 4.
When does it become manipulation?
Is it when people stand outside polling booths with leaflets for everyone?
Is it saying "you must vote liberal" to join the society of liberals against acronym abuse anonymous (slaaa)?

A question, as I am in Australia I'm not up with US law. Are prison inmates allowed to vote?
If they aren't couldn't this be a way for the police etc to manipulate the voting? Which is what point 4 is trying to stop.
