Looking Up Voting Records

How To Find Your Senator's Voting Record
Your US Senators are elected into office for a six year term. During this stay, they will have to vote on hundreds of issues. You need to know exactly how they are voting so YOU can decide if you want them to remain in office or not. Never trust a "News" accounting of how your US Senators voted for a particular bill or law. If you are seriously concerned about their voting, you need to take the time to look it up yourself. You need Internet access. It's not hard and this article describes how to do it, as follows:

  1. Open your Internet browser, type, and press Return: The United States Senate page displays.
  2. In the menu bar at the top of the page, select "Legislation & Records." The Legislation and Records Home page displays.
  3. In the middle column of that page select "Roll Call Votes." The Roll Call Summary page displays.
  4. In the Vote column, select a number. (Descriptions for each number are in the Descriptions column). The summary of that bill displays providing details of how everyone voted on it.
  5. Select "By Home State" to see how your two Senators voted. 

It's that simple! Give it a try and become more involved with YOUR government! No more excuses.
