Who Keeps Track of Votes?
The Clerk of the House of Representatives maintains a list of votes for each motion and legislation that is voted on by the full House. These are called "roll call votes."
How can I look up a vote cast by Congressman Schiff?
Simply follow the easy steps listed below to look up a vote cast by Congressman Schiff or any other member. Note: You may want to read all of the steps before clicking on the appropriate links.
Visit the Clerk's Roll Call Vote webpage. The far left column labed "Roll" will give you the number of the roll call vote. Moving to the column on the right, you see the date the vote was cast. The "Question" tells you if the vote was on final passage, on an amendment, or as otherwise noted.
Click on the appropriate "Roll" number on the same row as the title/description that you are interested in. If it is an older vote that you are interested in (must be in the same year), move to the bottom of the screen and you will encounter a similar image as seen on the left. Simply click on a previous set of roll call votes.
