Roll calls

A roll call is a recorded vote of each member of a chamber. Some roll call votes are required by law or chamber rules, but sometimes a chamber member may request a roll call vote to be taken and recorded.

Rollcalls are, similarly to fiscal notes, sub-resources of bills and as such discoverable from the bill version representation.
