  1. This was old-fashioned vote buying.

    A candidate would pay a fixer to get them some votes. The fixer would arrange for corrupt election judges, and also bribe some voters. The voter would come in, and then leave without finishing voting. The corrupt election judge would then go change the vote.

    To make a federal case, they included racketeering and wire fraud charges. The wire fraud was that the conspirators had telephoned the results to the Secretary of State, know that the results were fraudulent.

    This could as easily been done with paper ballots.
