In 2024, nearly 3 billion people will have the opportunity to cast ballots in democratic elections all around the world. Safeguarding the integrity of these elections will require, in part, the availability of reliable election-related information, confidence in credible journalism and access to a diversity of viewpoints.

Bad actors abuse artificial intelligence (AI), notably large language models and generative AI, to distort facts, develop deepfakes, create noise and microtarget audiences with hyper-segmented messages. To combat these abuses, platforms and states must implement policy and regulatory safeguards to ensure the integrity of the information space; independent electoral management bodies (EMBs) should play a role in ensuring access to reliable election-related content.

This Policy Brief provides the top 10 recommendations for platforms and states outline the most important measures that should be taken. 

The Policy Brief will be soon available in French, German and Spanish.
