Following an audit in Maricopa County that was long anticipated by supporters of former President Donald Trump, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey declared there will be “no decertification” of the state’s 2020 presidential election results.
Despite Trump’s requests, Ducey, a Republican, took to Twitter on Friday to announce that the election outcome would not be decertified and that the law did not allow for decertification.
It’s no secret that we’ve seen confidence erode in our election system in recent years. It’s not a problem exclusive to Arizona, and it didn’t start in the 2020 election cycle. 1/— Doug Ducey (@dougducey) September 25, 2021
President Joe Biden won Maricopa County, according to the election results and three prior audits, according to the controversial audit. Cyber Ninjas, a business with no prior expertise evaluating elections, was in charge of the audit.
On Friday, Trump released a statement urging Arizona to decertify the election results.
Ducey, on the other hand, made it plain that this would not be the case, and that his state will adhere to the law.
