Maybe others have thought of this before, but consider how the Electoral College mitigates the effects of voting fraud. No matter how many fake voters are registered in a state, all the fraud can do is turn that state's electoral votes to the other side. Fraud thus needs to be much more decentralized than it would need to be if we elected a president by popular vote, since in that case massive fraud in a single place could more easily swing the balance of the whole election.
