Here is what Dan, at EDA had to say:
There is no way for citizen groups to get enabling legislation passed by any state in time to implement UPS for this election.
vote-counting verification procedures so long as they do not violate terms of existing election law.
Therefore, organized citizen pressure could conceivably move a county elections department to voluntarily adopt UPS, without the need for state legislation.
There is a great deal of resistant bureaucratic inertia to overcome, but this is a campaign that is worth undertaking to build awareness now, and start the momentum that can result in UPS implementation at the local level, one county at a time.
