DO YOU KNOW HOW YOUR ELECTED REPRESENTITIVE VOTES?
You vote to send a representative to our state capitol to advocate for you and your family. You deserve to know how that representative votes every time, on every issue, at every stage of the process.
PROBLEM: Unrecorded voice-votes in the TN legislature hide actions on issues and agendas that may not be in your best interest. Presently, most votes are voice-votes, many of which are questionable but called the way the chairman or the leadership favors, …no record, …no accountability.
SOLUTION: Every vote, both house and senate, to be executed electronically, putting all votes reliably on record and available later for public access.
I, the undersigned, as a citizen of the state of Tennessee, have no way of knowing how my representative votes on many important issues decided by voice-votes. This is not acceptable. As a citizen of my district, I have a civic duty to hold my representative accountable. If I cannot know how he or she voted, I cannot do my civic duty.
I hereby call for electronic voting on all votes and the recording of those votes for public access.
