My Voting Record

The following table allows you to view all of my votes, with the most recent at the top. Here is a brief description of what each column in the table represents.

DATE: The month and day that the vote took place.

RC#: Each time an official vote is taken, it is given a number. This is the roll call number, or RC#. A vote does not always mean the passage or failure of legislation. Some votes are procedural, much like approving the minutes of a meeting, while others simply serve to try to move legislation forward toward a pass or fail vote.

BILL: This is the official number of the bill. Each bill number is preceded by H.R., which stands for House Resolution.

QUESTION: This is the description of the vote. "On Passage" means to approve a bill. "On Motion To Recommit" is a vote to move a bill to a full "On Passage" vote."On Agreeing To The Amendment" is a vote to approve an amendment to a bill. "On Ordering the Previous Question" is a vote keeping debate open and attempting to replace a bill with an alternative version.

VOTE: "Nay" or "No" indicates a "no" vote and "Yea" or "Aye" indicates a "yes" vote. There’s no mean­ing­ful dif­fer­ence be­tween Yea and Aye, nor between Nay and No. They both mean “I vote in favor” or “I vote against”. The difference comes down to procedure. The Con­sti­tu­tion ac­tu­al­ly re­quires “Yea” and “Nay” to be used for votes on the pas­sage of bills. Both the House and Senate do this. However, on House voice votes, where no physical count is made of a vote, "Aye" and "No" are used. So you will see "Aye" and "No" for voice votes but "Yea" and "Nay" for record­ed votes. Also keep in mind that if the Speaker determines that a voice vote has gone to one side, let's say the "Ayes" have it, then everyone is recorded with an Aye vote, even if you we saying "No" on the floor. Congress Members can request that the votes be counted on any voice vote, where they would then be registered as “Yeas” and “Nays”.

BILL NAME: The official name of the legislation.
