Elections for the office of Alabama State Senate took place in 2014. A primary election took place on June 3, 2014; a runoff election took place where necessary on July 15, 2014. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was February 7, 2014. Stephen Sexton, Harry D'Olive, Jr., Danny B. Joyner, Greg Albritton and Jeff Peacock faced off in the Republican primary. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Albritton and D'Olive - met in a runoff election, which Albritton won.[2] Incumbent George M. "Marc" Keahey (D) withdrew before the Democratic primary and party leaders chose Susan Smith (D) as a replacement on June 10, 2014.[3][4][5][6][7] Albritton then defeated Smith in the general election on November 4, 2014.[8]

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 Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to
