Norwood won election in the special election for District 28 of the Mississippi State Senate. The seat was vacant following the death of Alice Harden (D) on December 6, 2012. Norwood faced Cindy Ayers-Elliott, Tamarra Grace Butler, Marshand Crisler, Antonio Porter, James "Jimmy" Stewart, Kathy L. Sykes, Tommy L. Wallace, II and Cassanda Welchlin in the special election on February 5, 2013. Candidates had until January 7 to file. Special elections in Mississippi are nonpartisan. As no candidate took over 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Crisler and Norwood - met in a runoff on February 26, which Norwood won.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Texas

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 Texas scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.

2014

In 2014, the Legislature was in session from January 7 through April 2.[9]

Legislators are scored on "economic growth, jobs and other broad job-related issues."[10]
