Where can I find the recorded vote on a bill?

Recorded votes on a bill on the floor of the U.S. Senate or U.S. House of Representatives can be located in the Congressional Record.   If you have the bill number, the “History of Bills and Resolutions” section of the Congressional Record Index provides the page number for roll call votes.  If you do not have the bill number, you may research the topic in the subject index portion of the Congressional Record Index.

From the main Congress.gov page, under the header Recent, select Roll Call Votes and then choose the chamber and session of Congress to see a list of votes.

For more information about congressional voting records, visit the Law Library's research guide, Congressional Voting Records: A Beginner's Guide.
