September's Project of the Month

State-Legislative Scorecards-Badge.png

This September, we highlight an exciting project brought to you by our State Legislative Project on state legislative scorecards.

Ballotpedia is in the process of developing an encyclopedic list of published scorecards. It is Ballotpedia’s goal to incorporate all available scorecards regardless of ideology or number. On Ballotpedia, we define scorecards as those produced by newspapers, interest groups, think tanks, partisan groups, 501c3s and 501c4s that provide relative rankings and covers all state or federal lawmakers. The goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive list of legislative scorecards for each state and to ensure that descriptions are unbiased and accurate. Have you seen a scorecard we've missed? Please email us at
Please include the following in your e-mail:

  • The link to the scorecard
  • The name of the organization
  • The state
  • The year or session the grades were given

3. Find an article you'd like to improve.
4. Start editing!

You can also view tutorials on editing, or contact us.

Who Runs the States

Hello! Thanks so much for your comment on Luke's profile. My name is Geoff Pallay and I'm the Director of Research and lead author of the study. I very much appreciate your feedback about the chart. Yes, you are right that we did not include in the legend a notion for third party/independent governors. This was predominantly due to spacing issues -- and the general understanding that readers would have about what grey would mean.

Thank you so much for your clarification about 1993. We chronicle situations of ties here -- but it seems as if you have unearthered another! We'll work on making the adjustment -- do you have any sources that you could perhaps provide as reference?

Finally, excellent point about the color/border comments. We'll make the necessary adjustments -- as you point out, an easy fix.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions or comments. Really appreciate your open feedback -- you clearly have a lot of firsthand knowledge about this kind of stuff! --Geoff Pallay 20:06, 16 July 2013 (CDT)
