Indiana AG prohibits automated political calls.
Questionable legality, but I'm not going to be the one to fight it.

Update: Eric Jafe has written a brief urging Supreme Court cert for a similar case.
And today's news:
6 firms fined for automated calls
Star report
The Indiana Attorney General Steve Carter on Tuesday fined six Indiana companies a total of more than $5 million for violating the state's pre-recorded message statute.

The law requires companies to use a live person to gain consent from the receiving person prior to using pre-recorded phone calls.
Facing fines are Fax.com, FSL Connect, Blue Skies Inc., Weight Loss Center of South Bay Inc, Compass Care Inc., and Senior Solutions LLC.
