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.

Controversy

Blackface

In February 2013, Hikind hosted a party celebrating the Jewish holiday, Purim, for which costumes are traditionally worn. At the party, he donned blackface and an Afro wig for his guise as a basketball player, which led to criticism from the Anti-Defamation League, as well as Assembly colleagues including Speaker Sheldon Silver. Hikind apologized in a February 25 news conference, but said that his record showed that he was not a racist and that the costume was in "good taste."[18]
