Disrupting the vote itself is relatively easy. "Wiping" the votes
wouldn't actually change a result. Appropiate action would presumably be
taken against such an attack on democracy. If a real threat existed
along those lines, I'm sure measures would be put in place to prevent
the magnet from doing damage. It'd probably want to be a pretty big
magnet in any case, no?
