AAUW Action Fund Congressional Voting Record

How Do Your Senators and Representatives Vote?

The AAUW Action Fund Congressional Voting Record (CVR) provides information about elected federal legislators through the votes they cast on issues that are critical to the Action Fund’s mission.

The CVR provides information about senators’ and representatives’ co-sponsorship and votes. Each legislator is scored based on their record on AAUW priorities.* These priorities include equal pay, education, campus sexual assault, campaign finance, human trafficking, and reproductive rights. The CVR is distributed to every member of Congress.

Find out how your elected officials scored!
