The 2024 election cycle is coinciding with the wide and growing accessibility of sophisticated AI technology, creating an inflection point that will test the resilience of democratic structures and tech companies’ ability to scale AI tools safely and responsibly. Current media coverage of AI’s impact on elections tends to reside in the extreme. Headlines depict apocalyptic hypotheticals in which AI will threaten election security, flood the zone with inaccurate election information, and sway the will of voters. Yet, just one and a half years since ChatGPT was first released to the public and with just over six months before the presidential election, we must be realistic about the probable threats and appropriate responses—as well as opportunities—that AI presents for the U.S. election ecosystem.

Join us for an expert discussion on Wednesday, April 24, to better understand what the widespread availability of AI might mean for voters, campaigns, and election officials this year.
