Talking All Things Voter and Election Integrity with Ruth Weiss Co Founder of Election Integrity Project California
We are so thrilled to share this episode with you all where we sit down and chat with Ruth Weiss, Vice President and Co-Founder of the Election Integrity Project California, Inc. (EIPCa).
Coming off of Super Tuesday it seems like a better time than ever to talk about Voter Fraud and Maintaining Election Integrity in California. While some people don't really think Voter Fraud is that much of an issue in the US, Ruth disagrees.
Ruth’s father was a U.S. History teacher, who taught using primary documents to instill a deep understanding of this country’s real roots and purpose. As a result, she grew up with a healthy respect for America and everything that has made her exceptional.
After retiring from 34 years of teaching high school English and Spanish, Ruth began to search for a new way of contributing to society and her fellow citizens.
The evidence that all is not well with California’s electoral process became clear to Ruth and many California citizens in the early years of the new century. She believes, as every American should, that voting in every election is the greatest privilege we have as American citizens, and the single most important act that we will ever do for ourselves and our posterity. But if our election process is subverted by error, apathy, carelessness and fraud, then we are robbed of the significance and purpose of the great privilege of voting, and that leads directly to the demise of our Republic.
Ruth came to understand that being involved with the Election Integrity Project was her next calling, and she began working with them as San Diego County Coordinator in February of 2011, just two months after the company’s founding.
In March of 2017, Ruth Weiss and Linda Paine began the effort to found a nonprofit organization to continue the work of the Election Integrity Project and on July 21, 2017, the Election Integrity Project California, Inc. (EIPCa) was officially recognized as a 501(c)(3) California public benefit nonprofit corporation.
In this episode we chat all things voter and election integrity and why being able to vote is a great privilege that should always be held to the highest standard.
