Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Yesterday another bill went to the floor of the House of Representatives and, like the last time, failed to get enough votes. It is time that the national organizations and their supporters change their strategies to a state-by-state strategy. We are NOT going to get any legislation through congress this year, and very possibly not next year. We can make a difference at the state level though. While many have concentrated on spending their time and money in Washington DC lobbying for the various bills that have come up; activists in Tennessee, New York, New Mexico, Florida, and other states and many counties have been successful in new laws being passed and DREs being replaced. Rather than spend the time and money in Washington DC, we need to spend it in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, Annapolis Maryland, and Atlanta Georgia....
