Actual Voting Records

Reported by Nancy - October 10, 2004 -

VoteSmart has a database of Congressional voting records going back to 1988. So before I hear one more person blathering on about ANYONE's voting record, go to their website & look it up. It may seem like a lot of "hard work" to READ all this stuff & "some people" seem to have an aversion to "hard work", but it's your responsibility as a citizen. Just do it.

Here's what they include for every member of Congress:
Current Office
Current District
