How Secure -- and Accurate -- Are Elections in the United States?

Election integrity can be a major concern in developing democracies. The United Nations and other organizations often send in teams of neutral observers to help local elections officials ensure the accuracy and fairness of the voting process. But what about here at home? How accurate and fair are elections in a country that holds itself up as the paragon of democracy?
