These are a few sentences on the Augustan Age I'd like you to check. I'm unsure about punctuation and word choice.

3.Elections were controlled by the local landowners, since voting was not secret.
4) Politicians were concerned with bribing the electorate either with money or with the promise of jobs. The state was to protect legal rights but was not to interfere in private property.
