    The standard here shouldn't be anywhere near "DNA proof." (I don't think the statute is very clear about what the standard is.) Circumstantial evidence could be convincing -- but, as you said, it would have to be positive evidence, i.e., a particular reason to believe in ballot tampering of some magnitude, rather than the absence of evidence against ballot tampering.

    I agree with play jurist that it's relevant how distinctive Waukesha County's bag problems are.

    The problem is that with just one race on the ballot, it's very easy to forge ballots.

    For what it's worth, at least much of the county had more than one race on the ballot -- although in practice, I'm not sure how useful that is.
