The U.S. Congress Votes Database, http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/

Compiled from various public sources, the Washington Post's U.S. Congress Votes Database permits users to see how their Senators and Representatives have voted in roll call votes since the 102d Congress (1991).

View votes by

  • Congress and session
  • Senator and Representative (including members who miss the most votes)
  • Bills and resolutions (including most voted on bills and resolutions)
  • Late-night votes
  • Vote margins (narrow and wide)
  • Votes on impeachments, nominations, Speaker elections, treaties, and Vice-Presidential tie-breakers

By RSS feed, a user can elect to monitor the votes of specific members of Congress and/or the most votes in Congress.
