Let’s Get Rid of Voter Fraud

Are any of you tired of hearing whining cries of voter fraud every time there is an election?
Some US dems raised the cry after the recent presidential election and it certainly isn’t something that is limited to the US as this plaint about Sunday’s election in the Ukraine highlights and Google currently lists 388,000 entries for “voter fraud.”
It seems to me that if we dramatically reduced the power currently vested in these elected positions we would simultaneously get rid of the voter fraud issue. After all, who would want the positions if they wield no power and who would care who held these powerless positions.
