In both cases, the threat (boot-time malware, non-registered people voting) is effectively nonexistent
I'm not sure about non-registered people voting, but boot-time malware is alive and well in Windows world. Is it the most common type of malware (as it was 20 years ago)? No, not anymore. Does is exit? Oh, yeah. It's no longer used as a sole distribution venue (in networked world it's not the most effective way), but it's regularly used to hide the rest of the stuff from AV software.
