FLOOR UPDATE - REMOTE VOTING BY PROXY

Members are advised that pursuant to H.Res. 965, the Office of the Clerk is accepting remote voting by proxy letters throughout the covered period designated by the Speaker on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. 

Members are further advised that this new proxy voting system has been developed to afford Members greater flexibility to safely record their votes during this national pandemic.  To ensure the integrity of this new process, we ask that Members familiarize themselves with the requirements for proxy voting and strictly adhere to these requirements.  This will allow the Clerk’s office to effectively fulfill their vital role of recording and counting Members' votes with the utmost accuracy.

The following guidance and procedures have been released by the Office of the Clerk:

"Members can submit proxy letters to Clerk_Proxy@housemail.house.gov.

To ensure that letters are received and processed via email, you must send them using an official House email address. In addition, a Member seeking to vote by proxy must then send the dated and signed hard copy of the letter to:

Office of the Clerk
H-154, U.S. Capitol
Washington, DC 20515-6601

The following resources on HouseNet will help get you started with this process: For more information, please refer to the Remote Voting by Proxy Regulations submitted by House Committee on Rules Chairman McGovern in the Congressional Record on Friday, May 15, 2020."
