Re: On "critical infrastructure"
@Whoopty: Ditto on the Republican side.  I've seen reports of election fraud to favor Ted Cruz in some locations during the primaries over Donald Trump.

Of course, Trump prevailed in getting the nomination anyway, but [alleged] election fraud is [alleged] election fraud.

Re: On "critical infrastructure"
While I definitely agree, it's interesting that this is mentioned during this election, which many consider was influenced and manipulated by the Clinton camp. Although it starts to edge into conspiracy territory, there's a lot of evidence to suggest that the Clinton's used election fraud to get ahead of Bernie Sanders during his campaign.

On "critical infrastructure"
I definitely agree that our nation's voting system should be considered and protected as critical infrastructure.

I'm not sure that political parties' systems (whether DNC, RNC, or whomever) are a necessary part of the nation's voting system or in any way "critical infrastructure."  I don't want my tax dollars used or the power of my government used to protect a political party's systems as "critical infrastructure" -- even if it's a political party I favor.

But we can certainly do more to secure the voting process itself.  That would be a good idea.
