Scorecards

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

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 February 25 through May 19.

Legislators are scored on bills of interest to an organization advocating "limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty."[10]
  • Legislators are scored on pro-life issues; committee, procedural and floor votes are counted.
  • Legislators are scored on seven business-related bills.
Legislators are scored on pro-choice issues.
  • Legislators are scored on votes of interest to an economically conservative organization.

2013

In 2013, the Legislature was in session from January 8 to May 20.

  • Legislators are scored on pro-life issues; committee, procedural and floor votes are counted.
Legislators are scored on votes of interest to a socially conservative "pro-family" organization.[12]

Taxpayers League of Minnesota

The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."[14]
