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 Delaware scorecards, email suggestions to

In 2013, the Delaware General Assembly was in session from January 8 through July 1.[10]

Legislators are scored on their stances on "social and economic justice issues."


Brady is a Boy Scout leader, board president of the Graham Senior Center, executive board member of the Greater Wilmington Convention and Visitor's Bureau and board member of the Wilmington Free Library.[11]
