The 1972 Indiana gubernatorial election was held on November 7, 1972.

Although during the same election cycle Indiana voters approved a constitutional amendment allowing the governor to serve in office for eight out of 12 years, incumbent Republican Governor Edgar Whitcomb was term-limited due to having been elected under the prior version of the constitution.[1][2][3]

Republican nominee, Speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives Otis Bowen defeated Democratic nominee Matthew E. Welsh with 56.77% of the vote.
