WATCH: Arizona county supervisor says he’d be ARRESTED if he didn’t vote to certify election

A top official on Mohave County Board of Supervisors said publicly that he was told he’d be arrested if he didn’t certify the midterm election in Arizona.

Yesterday at a Mohave County Board of Supervisors meeting, Supervisor Ron Gould said “I vote ‘aye’ under duress.”

Gould continued, saying “I found out today that I have no choice but to vote “Aye” or I will be arrested and charged with a felony.”

Gould added “I don’t think that is what our founders had in mind when they used the democratic process to elect our leaders. I find that very disheartening.”

Mohave County is the northwestern most county in Arizona that borders Nevada.
