Votes on bills in the House and Senate are taken either by voice or by electronic voting system. Voice votes are recorded in the Journals as total “ayes” or “noes” whereas roll call votes are electronically recorded for each member.
The Legislative Library maintains roll call voting records for bills which come up for votes before the full House and Senate. These records are searchable by bill number and reside within the bill notebooks housed in the Library. Votes from 1971-1984 are available on microfilm and can also be found in the House and Senate Journals as well as at the State Archives.
Votes by individual member are available only for 1997 to the present.
