How Did They Vote?

I sometimes like to know how a particular member of Congress voted on a matter, but it can be a little tricky to come up with that information. It's sometimes useful (or entertaining) to know which Congresscritters miss votes. That, too, can be difficult to learn. Until now.

The U.S. Congress Votes Database provides one-stop shopping for that and much more information. According to The Washington Post's website, "This site, washingtonpost.com's U.S. Congress Votes Database, is a deep database of every vote in the United States Congress since the 102nd Congress (1991). It lets you browse votes in a variety of ways -- both in aggregate and for individual members of Congress."

For people needing or wanting to track the votes of federal legislators, this site is worth bookmarking or RSS feeding.
