When they do it in Russia, it makes CNN.
When it happens here... no one believes it, because it just seems too insane.
You could show literal, visual proof of vote tampering in every district in the country -- thousands and thousands of videos, photographs, and audio
recordings. You could painstakingly collect them, vet them, and present them in an easy to navigate on-line database available to the public.
You could promote public awareness with posters, speakers, door-to-door canvassing -- everything!
And even if by some chance, you managed to expose EVERYONE to the truth of what had happened...
80-90% of them would refuse to believe it, because they would rather live in a world where that kind of corruption doesn't happen here.
This is why it's so hard to convince people of the truth of these kinds of things -- if they don't 'want' to believe it, then the information will
never make it far enough past their senses for the rational mind to even take over.
The information comes in, immediately creates an uncomfortable dissonance, and is quickly discarded.
And the criminals win. Again.
