Nancy Wilson is a Democratic member of the Montana House of Representatives, representing District 95. She was first elected to the chamber in 2014.

Wilson previously represented District 97 in 2013. She resigned from the state house on December 31, 2013[1] because of a requirement in the state's Public Employee Retirement System that enrollees must resign from all state jobs for 90 days. Wilson, who retired from the University of Montana on December 20, 2013, after 28 years, and also worked in the governor's office in the 1970s, said that opting for benefits while a legislator was a mistake. She announced that she would run again in the reapportioned District 95 in the 2014 election.[2]

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 Texas 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.
