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 Connecticut scorecards, email suggestions to

In 2014, the Connecticut General Assembly was in session from February 5 to May 7.[9]

Legislators are scored on their votes on "issues important to Connecticut's working men and women."
Legislators are scored on their votes on "key environmental bills."


Voting fraud

Ayala surrendered to state police on September 26, 2014, facing multiple counts of voting fraud. She was charged with eight misdemeanor counts of fraudulent voting, ten felony counts of primary or enrollment violations and one felony count of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. She is accused of voting in a number of elections between 2009 and 2012 in a district where she did not reside. Ayala also allegedly gave fabricated evidence to State Elections Enforcement Commission investigators. The criminal investigation is not expected to affect her term of office, which will end in January 2015.[10]
