"With public confidence in our elections in peril, it's clear our elections must be pristine and above reproach — and the sole purview of government," Ducey announced in a signing letter.

Ducey made the announcement after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan donated $419 million to two nonprofit organizations, including the Center for Election Innovation and Research, that helped fund local and state election administration ahead of the 2020 presidential election. 

At the time of the announcement, the couple stated that "many counties and states are strapped financially and working to determine how to staff and fund operations that will allow for ballots to be cast and counted in a timely way."
