Honestly, if you're going to stuff the ballots, add some class. Make sure all of them have the names of guys WE personally killed or something. This sort of ballot stuffing hackery is so Bush League. (Pun Intended.)
Over 90 percent voted yes? Did the guys with the guns vote? Are there only like, 5 of them? Methinks not.
Look, stuff the ballots and get a 75% result and people will go "Whoa! Landslide for Democracy!" and no one will be the wiser. 90% and above is just screaming yellow irony alarms.
