Number 3 is quite interesting, actually, because it needn't be physical stuffing at all. All the fraudster needs to be able to control is the time of recount termination and the order in which boxes are submitted for recounting: if you can tell which region each box came from and the regions are sufficiently gerrymandered, the fraudster can just submit boxes exclusively from regions gerrymandered to have his party of choice win, and then stop the recount before submitting any boxes from regions gerrymandered the other way (or even fairly-shaped regions, if there are any left).
