How Do Your Senators and Representatives Vote?
The AAUW Action Fund’s Congressional Voting Record provides information on the positions of senators and representatives on the issues that are important to the Action Fund’s mission.
The specific legislation included in the voting record for the 113th Congress was selected on the basis of AAUW’s public policy priorities and principles as adopted at the AAUW convention in 2013.
This voting record provides information about senators’ and representatives’ co-sponsorship and votes on AAUW’s issues — including budget and appropriations, economic security, education, and civil rights.
Using the Voting Record
AAUW members and other concerned citizens can use the voting record in a variety of ways to hold their senators and representatives accountable for their positions on AAUW’s priority issues:
- Refer to information in the voting record during community issue forums, candidate debates, or at town hall meetings held by your members of Congress.
- Use the voting record when writing letters to the editor, blog posts, or op-eds about a legislator’s position and AAUW’s issues.
- Distribute copies of AAUW Action Fund Congressional Voting Record during local voter education events and at local libraries, community festivals, and civic centers.
- Share the voting record with coalition partners, friends, family, and prospective AAUW members.
- Post voting record information on Facebook, Twitter, and other forms of social media.
By taking these actions, you help educate your community on the issues and on policy makers’ records, and particularly demonstrate to women voters exactly what’s at stake as they head to the polls.
