In 1960, many thought Kennedy's operatives fixed the tallies in Texas and Illinois, giving him those states' 51 electoral votes and a majority in the Electoral College.
There are numerous theories on how Republicans "rigged" the election in both 2000 and 2004.

Any time you refuse to allow international elections observers to so much as observe, it raises some serious doubts about exactly how honest the elections proceedings are/were.

(aka Ohio, 2004)

Considering how many illegal voter registrations have been turning up with the recent investigations, it certainly seems that people have been trying to rig elections...

I'd bet there has been. And if not there was a atleast some manipulations or some tampering. I remember there was this guy who was paid by the republicans to jam something electronic or something like that. He wrote a book about. Spent 2 years in prison.

The 2000 election. They purged voters off the rolls and made sure they were mostly blacks... people who had the names of felons.

That lost Florida for Gore. That and the jews for buchanan...

Have they changed the actual numbers to alter the results? I doubt it.
Has the electoral college failed to represent its state's people? Absolutely. Therefore, in that sense, elections have been "rigged" out of the liking of the people.

Every place that has a history of elections will have a history of rigged elections.

That doesn't even matter. McCain still controls Real America if Obama wins.

I would imagine it would have been fairly easy to do in the early days before 24 hour media and daily polls.
