Actually not at all. It becomes much much harder to fake especially if it's based on personal biometrics that are then encrypted to create a unique private "key" for each person. That "key" would be required to access/verify the data. I'm talking about combining retina/fingerprint data with DOB/SSN. So unless you plan on stealing an eyeball and a thumb... not likely to fake/manipulate or even access the data.

Since the data would be fully encrypted the only "public" data that could be tracked is numbers of votes by voting station by issue/candidate. In my perfect scenario you couldn't even break it down by gender or age or anything. (that can lead to abuse)

Yes, the NSA could crack it (in months for JUST ONE RECORD if it is 256bit like I would demand) and it would need serious tweaking once quantum computing is reality (quantum computing will make encryption a joke)... but these are tin foil hat concerns, I'm more concerned with tracking abuses and what not which would have to be covered by the law.
