There just was a vote in the 47-member U.N. Human Rights Council, and it is really easy to find quotes like this:

The 47-member U.N. Human Rights Council has rejected a resolution to hold a debate next year on alleged human rights abuses in Xinjiang by a narrow margin of 19 votes against, 17 in favor and 11 abstentions.

But I would really like details of the exact vote of all 47 members, and I can't find it.

Can anyone find exactly who voted for each side? Bonus points for tips on how to google for votes in the UN system.
