City of Richmond launches voting record system

If you’ve heard a city councillor speak and then wondered how they voted on a related topic a year ago, then the answer is now at your fingertips.

The City of Richmond has launched a new online Council Voting Record System, enabling users to get a visual breakdown of how current councillors voted at meetings and public hearings.

The city says the format will be “simple” with an interface that “is intuitive, easy to use and includes the ability to keyword search through item topics or by specific meeting dates.”

Information included with each vote includes the item number, resolution number, motion type and overall voting results.

To provide context and background for each vote, users can also follow a link to the full set of minutes or to the specific item recorded in the online Council Decisions Database.

The online voting record begins with the inaugural meeting of the current council on Nov. 5, 2018 and will be updated regularly.
