Sen. Barbara Mikulski's American Civil Liberties Union rating compared to the Senate Democratic average

Annually, many interest groups rate members of the House and Senate on how well each member's voting record jibes with each group's principles or legislative aims. Organizations provide these scores at least in part to provide constituents and other groups with an easy-to-read barometer of a member's ideological leaning or policy preference. Some groups have provided consistent ratings across time and can therefore provide a useful longitudinal glimpse into a member's voting history. Here, users will find member-by-member interest group scores from 1983 to the most recent full legislative year.
