Maintaining Fair Elections


Fair elections are the bedrock of our democracy, and Hoosiers have a right to know when candidates and campaigns are using artificial intelligence (AI).

A new law I supported requires that if campaigns use AI images, audio or video that is so realistic a reasonable person might not know they’re fake, they must label the content so voters know what’s real and what’s not.

Without these new guardrails in place, anyone could use AI to create lifelike videos or imitate someone’s voice in order to deceive Hoosiers in the upcoming elections. This new law requires campaigns using AI-generated content to include a disclaimer on their material.

I also supported a new law this year that helps election offices across the state make sure voters’ information is up to date and allow the state to more easily identify noncitizens who are registered illegally.
