Well, to start we count absentee ballots and publish before the final poll-day numbers! You do it all except the last day’s mail. Then by, say, 3pm, you publish the final count.
Oh, and there must be a valid reason for voting absentee, not just that you’re a lazy butt!
But IS there an innocent and honest reason to oppose this procedure? Is there a reason NOT to do this other than that it makes cheating more difficult and YOU want to cheat?
