How Your Elected Officials Vote

Are you unsure about how your elected officials and legislators have or are voting? There is a great site called  Vote Smart that lets you do just that. All you need to do is search for your elected official’s name. When their profile comes up, select whatever issue you are inquiring about from the drop-down menu and see how they have voted in every vote relevant to that specific issue. You can then click on each bill to get full details and voting analytics.

With that in mind, to get you started here is how our BASD Senators and Representatives have voted on the issue of Education in recent years.
