Common Cause criticism

In 2008, Common Cause Nebraska (CCN) asserted that Conrad was acting unethically in doing paid work for Nebraskans United.

Scorecards

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

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