Halter Vote

Political control over the voter through coercion and abuse of authority to vote for a particular candidate. This keeps control of political power, office and public funds. It was one of the chief instruments of the colonels during the early decades of the Republic, when the vote was then open. Today, secret balloting and electronic voting machines have diminished this practice. Nevertheless, other aspects continue to curtail voter will, such as lack of information and strong economic power.
