During the certification process, two members of the Mohave County, AZ Board of Supervisors admitted they were voting “‘Aye,’ under duress,” adding, “I found out today that I have no choice but to vote ‘aye,’ or I’ll be arrested and charged with a felony,” Ron Gould of the Mohave Board of Supervisors said he was told. “I don’t think that is what our Founding Fathers had in mind when they eased the Democratic process to elect our leaders, our form of self-government. And I find that very disheartening,” he added.

Gould was not alone in certifying the election results “under duress.” Fellow board supervisor Hildy Angius also claimed she would face legal action for not certifying the result and further expressed a desire to avoid disenfranchising voters. She did, however, express optimism about her own county’s results, but cited issues in Maricopa County among her misgivings.
Americans are rightfully angry about this ridiculous process that doesn’t allow for proper investigations into potential, or in the case of Arizona, certain, voter fraud.
Here are just a few of the comments found below this video on Twitter.
- Wow, he said under duress and said he would be arrested? I don’t know why every American in the United States is not pissed off about this.
What’s even the point of “certification” then?
- “THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”
A shame Mr. Gould allowed himself to be bullied.
- Our elections are Third World.
