Ballotpedia Review Scorecard
We are proud to have recently increased our score with Ballotpedia/Sunshine Review. Since the launch of this new website in the spring of 2012, the Sunshine Review (acquired by Ballotpedia in July, 2013) elevated our grade to a B from a C. We are striving to increase that further to the highest grade possible, which reflects our dedication to transparent government.
Ballotpedia/Sunshine Review analyzes government websites from all 50 states grading them on their level of transparency. Websites are graded on several criteria such as proactive disclosure of:
Audits are kept by the
