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.
- Legislators are scored on their votes for or against CCF's position.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on "small business interests."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on pro-choice issues.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on their "work to support and advance the UW and higher education."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on environmental protection issues.
- Legislators are scored on whether they voted for or against WSLC's position.
Missed Votes Report
In March 2014, Washington Votes, the state’s premier legislative information website, released its annual Missed Votes Report, which provides detailed missed roll call votes on bills for every state legislator during the 2014 legislative session. The 2014 regular session included a total of 515 votes in the State House and 396 in the State Senate, as well as 1,372 bills introduced total in the legislature and 237 bills passed. Out of all roll call votes, 90 individual legislators did not miss any votes. 3 individual legislators missed more than 50 votes. Cleveland missed 39 votes in a total of 1017 roll calls. Cleveland responded to the number of missed votes. “I was excused from the Washington State Senate to meet a request by the Oregon State House of Representatives House Transportation Committee Chair to testify on a bill related to the replacement of the Interstate 5 Bridge between Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR. Given that this project was the single most important means of spurring new jobs and economic growth in my district and region, I felt it was imperative that I speak for my constituents and our state before the Transportation Committee in Oregon,” she said.
