Egan was the only member of the Alaska State Senate who was not up for re-election in 2012. Ordinarily, half (10) of Alaska's senators would have been up for election in 2012, and half would be up for election in 2014. Alaska senators serve staggered four-year terms. However in 2012, every senator except Egan faced re-election due to substantial changes resulting from 2011 redistricting. Egan was displaced by redistricting to District P. With the exception of Egan, who will simply finish his existing four-year term, senators scheduled for the 2014 election were elected to two-year terms in 2012, preserving Alaska's staggered Senate elections.

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.
In 2014, the 28th Alaska State Legislature was in session from January 21 to April 20.
Egan and his wife, Linda, have two children.
