Faulkner won election in the special election for Mississippi House of Representatives District 5. The seat was vacant following Kelvin Buck's (D) election as Mayor of Holly Springs. Faulkner faced Andre R. DeBerry, Arthur "Clyde" Ellzey, Daylon Cannon, Lee Edward Gill, Jacqueline Simon and Robert Earl Young in the special election, which took place on November 5, 2013. As no candidate received more than fifty percent of the votes, the top two vote-getters - Faulkner and DeBerry - met in a runoff on November 26, which Faulkner won.

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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
In 2014, the Legislature was in session from January 7 through April 2.
