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.
However, election administrators of the local electoral jurisdictions --counties, townships, etc.-- have wide discretion to implement additional
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.
Once is an exception, twice is a pattern, three is a trend.
