Process :: Chamber :: Voting
Voting is an important part of Representatives' jobs.
Each Representative has a desk on the Floor of the House chamber. They use buttons on their desk to vote.
What if a Representative isn't at his/her desk?
Sometimes a vote is called while a Member is waiting to speak at the microphone
or away from their desk. They can still vote using their fingers. Below
shows how 1, 2, or 3 fingers can mean "yes", "no"
or "not voting."
A Representative votes "No" on the House Floor by holding up two fingers.
