Scorecards

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

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 Connecticut 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 Connecticut General Assembly was in session from February 5 to May 7.[12]

Legislators are scored on their votes on "issues important to Connecticut's working men and women."
Legislators are scored on their votes on "key environmental bills."

2012

In 2012, the Connecticut General Assembly was in session from February 8 to May 9.[13]

Legislators are scored on their votes on "issues important to Connecticut's working men and women."
Legislators are scored on their votes on "key environmental bills."

Yankee Institute's Voter Guide

See also: Yankee Institute's Voter Guide

The Yankee Institute, a pro-market think tank, releases its Voter Guide after each two-year legislative term. Each member of the Connecticut General Assembly receives a score from 0 to 10 based on how he or she voted in ten key votes. The Institute selects key votes which "reveal the differences between those legislators that would harness the power of individual liberty and the market to improve lives, and those that prefer a centrally-planned approach." A legislator with a 10 voted in agreement with the Yankee Institute on all 10 votes, while a legislator with a 0 voted against the Yankee Institute's views or was absent for all 10 votes.[14]

2012

Giegler received a score of 8 on the Yankee Institute's Voter Guide for 2011-12, tied for the 8th highest score among the 152 scored members of the Connecticut House of Representatives. This score was the same as her score for the 2009-10 term.[14]
