Normally, recorded votes use electronic vote counting. The choice is by the Speaker using rule XX.
- (a) Unless the Speaker directs otherwise, the Clerk shall conduct a record vote or quorum call by electronic device.
Paragraph 3 was used in this case.
- The Speaker may direct the Clerk to conduct a record vote or quorum call by call of the roll. In such a case the Clerk shall call the names of Members, alphabetically by surname. When two or more have the same surname, the name of the State (and, if necessary to distinguish among Members from the same State, the given names of the Members) shall be added. After the roll has been called once, the Clerk shall call the names of those not recorded, alphabetically by surname. Members appearing after the second call, but before the result is announced, may vote or announce a pair.
