CommonsVotes app

The new CommonsVotes app, launched in November, is now the quickest way to find out how MPs have voted in the Chamber. Full division lists are made available on the app around 15-20 minutes after the result is announced.

About the app

CommonsVotes takes advantage of the electronic system for recording divisions on tablet devices, introduced in early 2016, to make the full breakdown of votes – showing which way MPs voted following debates in the Chamber – available quickly in an format easy to use and analyse.

The app sorts the division results by Ayes vs Noes and – within that – by party, and users have the option of bookmarking individual MPs to view their voting record.
