The Other Primary Day Ritual

Is people on the internets reporting minor shenanigans at polling places such as overzealous supporters, campaign material where it shouldn't be, minor ballot or voting machine cockups, and transmuting those things into an elaborate plot by one candidate or the other to "steal" the election.

That isn't to say that there can't be genuine polling issues, but they usually are not part of some grand conspiracy.
