There are a few more hoops to jump through.
Google senior vice president Kent Walker laid out the changes in a blog post on Friday.
To start, Google plans to introduce verification of political ad buyers. This means that anyone who wants to buy a political ad must prove they are a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident. To do this, buyers will have to provide a government-issued ID along with "other key information." Walker declined to clarify what that information would be.
Google will also be releasing an election ad transparency report this summer that will include information about who is buying election-related advertising and how much money they are spending.
"We’re also building a searchable library for election ads, where anyone can find election ads purchased on Google and who paid for them," Walker writes.
