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 Mississippi scorecards, email suggestions to

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.[9]

Legislators are scored on "economic growth, jobs and other broad job-related issues."[10]


Huddleston has been a member of the Aaron E. Henry Community Health Center, Aaron E. Henry Help Center, Vice Chair of ICS, President of MDBI, Vice President of Midway Delta, and a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Tallahatchie Utility Association.[1]
