#1 Not a 'done deal' yet. Lots of union and other leftist 'helpers' (from both in and out of state) organizing and delivering inner-city folks and university students to 'early polling' locations throughout major metro areas. Hard to say at this point if the vans stop at more than one polling place with their 'cargo'. Based on the makeup of the government poll workers (AFSCME) at these locations, checking to see if a person lives a their supposed address or has voted previously will not be a major concern.
Voter ID requirements (which Wisconsin had briefly until a liberal judge placed a restraining order keeping it on hold until after the recall election) would be a deterrent to these shenanigans.

#2 LOTS of absentee ballots in this election. Many, no doubt, to be voted by a small group dedicated to properly representing the dead, comatose and mentally incapacitated - in other words, Democrats.

#3 That election is now a crucial battleground for the future of America, and even a critical bellwether for how this fall's elections will turn out.
Walker is slightly ahead (today) in the polls but it is close.

#4 The results of the 'recall primary' were very good for Walker. He got more votes running unopposed than the two major Dems did combined in a hard fought and well financed primary.
At least some of the funds that Walker is raising will be used for spot monitoring of voting. While some vote fraud is certain to take place, it is very doubtful that it would amount to more than a few thousand votes at most statewide. This is because there are relatively few people motivated enough to put themselves on the line. What is more important than vote fraud itself is the intimidation (e.g., tires slashed in pro-Walker neighborhoods) and assisted votes (e.g., voting in assisted living institution where an 'advisor' helped the voter).

#5 You forgot the imaginary friends Glenmore - please imagine that they are very pissed off about it :).
