#6 Dead voters are the least of the problems.
I worked on the Los Angeles County election system. The big problem was people were not purged when then moved out of the county. The head of IS had moved to Orange County 4 years ago and was STILL a registered voter in both counties.
This doesn't count the felons, illegal aliens and cartoon characters who vote. Sen. Al Franken (D-Felons) is known as the "Mickey Mouse Senator" because that's whose vote got him elected.

#9 Hey, Al - I don't know how recently you worked for the LA election system...but if it's been awhile, you might be amused to know that LA County's current Registrar is a gent named Dean Logan. He held the same position in King County, WA, and back in '04 he likely stole the governorship for Christine Gregoire (Name That Party!) by "unexpectedly" finding bags of absentee ballots behind cabinets, in car trunks, etc.
