From Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper of July 19, 1856, comes the latest in malfeasance. No longer are the political insiders’ sole option be to ram a few extra votes in the ballot box and hope that suffices. Technology is on the march, and the call for advances in political chicanery has been answered. And thus we have the latest in ballot box stuffing technology.
Here’s how it works. Your chosen candidate for dog catcher is sure to lose if the people have their way., and we wouldn’t want that. Merely line the side and bottom underneath panels b and d with a few extra ballots marked with your candidate’s name, seal the box after the election, pull out the panels, turn the box upside down, reinsert the panels, turn the box upright and presto, a new dog catcher.
