Vice President, Co-Founder
Election Integrity Project California, Inc. (EIPCa)
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, and with her children grown and prospering in their own right, 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.
Through great consideration and prayer, 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. On July 21, 2017, with the help of returning EIP Board member Ellen Gifford and some pro-bono assistance from several attorneys, the Election Integrity Project California, Inc. (EIPCa) was officially recognized as a 501(c)(3) California public benefit nonprofit corporation.
Ruth is currently serving as EIPCa’s Vice President, Director of Legislative Oversight and Director of the Southern Region of California, consisting of San Diego and Imperial Counties.
Ruth is grateful to her husband David for his support and assistance in this mission, and proud of her two grown and very accomplished sons, Aaron and Andy. Her life and work are first and foremost dedicated to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are possible.
