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 on "issues important to Connecticut's working men and women."
- Legislators are scored on their votes on "key environmental bills."
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 was 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 did not affect her term of office, which ended in January 2015. On March 25, 2015, Ayala rejected a plea deal from Assistant State's Attorney Christopher Alexy. As of April 2015, no additional details about the case against Ayala were available.
Hit and Run Charges
Ayala faced hit and run charges after an accident on August 15, 2012, in which police alleged that she fled the scene of an accident. Ayala appeared on the ballot in the general election as the Democratic nominee as the charges against her were not felonies. Ayala entered a plea of not guilty to the charges on October 16, 2012. She was ultimately fined $350. Ayala defeated her general election opponent one month later, earning 89 percent of the vote.
