    Back in the old days of NYC’s Tammany Hall, Boss Tweed would send his troops out to voting places armed with small bottles of whiskey. Someone would enter the polling place and pick up a blank ballot. He would then fill out the ballot and hand it to the first voter in line. That voter would go in, pick up a blank ballot, cast the pre-marked ballot, and bring the blank ballot out. He would then give that ballot to the Tammany Hall operative and get a bottle of whiskey.

    The process would repeat for each voter.

    Interestingly, back in the 1750s (when the secret ballot hadn’t been invented yet), voters in Virginia colony would announce their vote publicly at the polling place. George Washington lost his first election. He won three years later, because this time his people brought a variety of bottles of alcohol to hand out to voters who voted for him.

    George Washington Plied Voters with Booze
    Ex-president also made whiskey, but was a wine lush.
