Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Idaho

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Idaho scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.===2013=== In 2013, the Idaho State Legislature was in session from January 7 through April 4.[10]

Legislators are scored on their votes on bills "impacting economic freedom in the state."===2012===

In 2012, the Idaho State Legislature was in session from January 9 through March 29.[11]

Legislators are scored on their stances on conservative issues.

Idaho Freedom Index

The Idaho Freedom Foundation, an Idaho-based, nonprofit educational research institute, released its "Idaho Freedom Index" in 2013. The index intended to show how Idaho legislators voted on the principles the Foundation seeks to promote. It measured each state legislator based on two tiers, which include whether legislators voted for or against bills that would create or eliminate government agencies, programs, and regulations, and bills that would impact the free market in a positive or negative way. Scores ranged from the highest possible score for members of the state Senate (194 points) and for members of the state House (180 points). A higher score indicated that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Foundation.[12] Johnson received a score of 46 points in the 2013 index, ranking 10th out of 35 members of the Idaho State Senate that were evaluated for the study.
