Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New York

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 New York 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.


Controversies

GPS tracking

Murray and State GOP Chairman Ed Cox admitted to hiring someone to attach a GPS device to the car of Incumbent Edward Hennessey (D), Murray's opponent, to determine if Hennessey lived in the district or not. [11] Cox said that he "sees nothing wrong with campaigns using something legal like a GPS device to determine if an electoral foe is breaking the law."[12] In New York it is legal for someone to secretly place a GPS device on the outside of another person's car. Democrats are outraged with the actions of Murray and Cox and are expected to press for legislation in the next legislative session in January 2015.[12]
