Ninth Circuit Rules CA Election Integrity Project has Standing to Challenge Constitutionality of California’s Election Laws

California’s election ‘anomalies’ are not new, nor have they been fixed

“Over the last decade California has passed laws, orders and regulations that have led to massive irregularities,” the Election Integrity Project California said in a statement Monday announcing a huge legal win.

The Ninth Circuit has ruled that Election Integrity Project®California (EIPCa) and recent and future congressional candidates have standing to challenge the Constitutionality of California’s election laws, regulations, policies and procedures that have weakened or removed integrity from the election process. Though the Constitution gives authority to state legislators to pass laws to manage elections and process ballots, EIPCa asserts they do not have carte blanche authority to pass laws that diminish the value of the lawfully cast ballots.

These laws, orders and regulations culminated “in the 2020 election, when Governor Newsom authorized mailing a ballot to all ‘active’ registrants on the voter rolls and former Secretary of State Alex Padilla gutted signature verification requirements. EIPCa received over 700 affidavits signed under penalty of perjury from EIPCa-trained observers who consistently reported election workers not adequately verifying signatures and, in some cases, counting ballots without signatures.”

EIPCa continues:

“Because neither the state legislature nor Alex Padilla required uniform and secure vote casting and counting procedures, uneven procedures were applied across counties. EIPCa and its co-plaintiffs filed this lawsuit against Governor Newsom, the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, and thirteen country registrars.

“This lawsuit is monumental because it is the first to challenge the constitutionality of California’s election laws and procedures, and we are the first to get past standing,” says Mariah Gondeiro, the lead attorney who works for Advocates for Faith and Freedom. “If we win, California will be required to enforce secure and uniform vote casting and vote counting procedures.”

“For over a decade, Election Integrity Project®California has researched and documented every aspect of California’s election process and identified how these laws transformed an Election Day into a 60-day election season fraught with easy to manipulate procedures,” says Linda Paine, President of EIPCa. “We are now seeing California Style laws in states across the country creating the same problems that have been witnessed and documented by EIPCa-trained observers in California for years.”

The Globe has covered election “anomalies” and explained some of California’s in 2020:

In 2016 the California Legislature and Gov. Jerry Brown ostensibly “legalized” ballot harvesting, allowing a third party to collect ballots and deliver them to election officials, eliminating the ballot protection law that allowed only a family member to return another voter’s ballot.

As I write this, I am receiving many reports from California voters who say their votes have not been counted. Candidates report their districts are only reporting at 59% and worse.

While the Secretary of State says he has until December 11 to announce California’s election outcomes, how did we get here?

Voters’ party registrations were changed right before the June 2016 Primary election, ensuring a Hillary Clinton win over challenger Bernie Sanders, in what was called electronic vote rigging. California was a crucial state for both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, but the election was called for Clinton minutes after the polls closed, before millions of provisional ballot votes were counted.

A 2017 study by Stanford University proved that Hillary Clinton‘s campaign pre-rigged the system to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. And it was never more apparent than in California where Bernie Sanders voters were likely robbed of a legitimate candidate.

  1. One can not be a professional career politician without also being corrupt! They are the originators of these types of wrongdoing. The professional career politician’s process of making deals with other professional career politicians on promised, possible, profitable future returns is called gambling. But it’s OUR dime they’re betting. It’s good to see that at least an effort of some kind is taking place to reign in these gambling addicts in the beginning, (at the polls). They naturally cheat as would all gamblers in order to “win?”! Since that IS what took place this election cycle in California. Cheating on a colossal scale. But actually getting justice in California? It goes against logic. Aren’t ALL Californian politicians insanely corrupt? I mean isn’t using the words “California” and “integrity” in the same contextual sentence at best a direct contradiction in terms and mutually exclusive as applied to politicians? I wish the plaintiffs many more successes in their endeavors on the behalf of “We, The People”).

  2. Americans should DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY. And return to SAME DAY-PAPER BALLOTS. Justice should be our primary concern. There is NONE with our current situation.

  3. I trust Gavin as far as I can throw a bus.

    • I have been this fight with Election Integrity Project of California first conducting my own inquiries into the SOS and Sacramento County since 2020. As a co-plaintif in this case I stand by our claims and pledge to see this fight through until we restore fair and transparent elections in California.

  4. “Elections are won not by the most votes but by who COUNTS the votes” Democrats do pay attention to history….when it teaches how to subvert a system.

    • Götterdamn-it-all says

      Republicans are also in on it. In all five swing states in 2020, there were Republican governors, secs. of state. and/or Republican controlled legislatures. They ALL rolled over. They did it again in the midterms. We are fighting an establishment Uniparty.

  5. So now EIPCa has standing what are their next moves going forward to clean up this mess?

    • I have been this fight with Election Integrity Project of California first conducting my own inquiries into the SOS and Sacramento County since 2020. As a co-plaintif in this case I stand by our claims and pledge to see this fight through until we restore fair and transparent elections in California. Our next move is discovery

  6. If you expect the Ninth Circuit Court to allow this action to go to completion, you are delusional…..

    • The Ninth Circuit ALREADY ruled in EIPCa’s favor by ruling EIPCa and the candidate plaintiff DO have STANDING.

      The Ninth Circuit DID remanded us back to the lower federal court to continue our lawsuit.

      This is a historical WIN for EIPCa and the candidate plaintiffs. When the Ninth Circuit rules in our favor that should let you know this is a STRONG case.

  7. Then answer is in the EIPCa Press Statement. link in the Globe article.

    quoted in the article, “The decision remanded the lawsuit to the lower court for discovery, which is the next phase of the litigation.”

  8. Great
