On Ballotpedia, we define scorecards as those produced by newspapers, interest groups, state think tanks, partisan groups, 501c3s and 501c4s that provide relative rankings and cover all state or federal lawmakers. Some scorecards are created with a focus on specific issues, while others are broad in scope.

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.

If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email them to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Ballotpedia is in the process of developing an encyclopedic list of published scorecards. Some states have a limited number of available scorecards or are produced only by a select number of groups. It is Ballotpedia’s goal to incorporate all available scorecards regardless of ideology or number.

We are also in the process of providing in-depth descriptions about the reports and the grading processes. However, for those that do not yet feature such descriptions, we offer a tutorial so you can help us expand these areas. See our writing guidelines to contribute.
