Sensus satisfies the democracy property completely when all registered voters submit ballots. However, if abstaining voters do not submit ballots, it is possible for the validator to submit and validate ballots in their names. By checking the signatures on all of the validation requests, an auditor may detect that this has occurred and determine the number of inappropriately validated ballots. However, it is not possible to correct the final election tally.
