House of Representatives Votes
Voting in the House of Representatives
Each Representative in the U.S. House is given an equal vote when legislation, motions, and questions come before the body on the Floor of the House. Votes can be cast by voice or by recorded vote. Most recorded votes are taken using an electronic voting machine. During those votes, members typically record their position using a Vote-ID card and must cast the vote in person. Recorded votes are recorded in the House Journal, the Congressional Record, and posted on the website of the Clerk of the House.
The Clerk of the House is the officer responsible for the recording of House votes. Below is a list of all of the roll call votes taking during the 2nd Session of the 112th Congress (2011, 2012). Comprehensive lists of roll call votes taken in the 111th Congress (2009, 2010) and 110th Congress (2007, 2008) are also available.
