lowstudent,

OK, I will not pursue except to say, that the only difference I see is the few who would not show up to vote.

People not showing up to vote isn't a problem, because typically when people buy non-absentee votes they don't pay until they get the little slip you get at the polling place when you vote. First they put out the word that if you vote for x, you'll get paid $y. Then they come back on election day to collect the slips and pay the $y's. Of course they have no idea whether the people vote for x or not.
