  • Table – Laying the bill on the table (taking no action)

  • Recommit – Sending the bill back to committee and restarting the bill process
  • Refer for Interim Study – Sends the bill to a subcommittee for future study
  • Voice vote – A vote taken without any tabulation
  • Division – Representatives use their electronic voting devices to vote on the bill, but their names are not collected. Any representative can request this, and the Speaker can request this if a voice vote is unclear.
  • Roll Call – A division where names are collected. At least ten representatives must request a roll call for it to occur.

Assistant EditorManchester Ink Link

Born and raised in the Granite State, Andrew Sylvia has written approximately 10,000 pieces over his career for outlets across Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. On top of that, he's a licensed notary and licensed to sell property, casualty and life insurance, he's been a USSF trained youth soccer and futsal referee for the past six years and he can name over 60 national flags in under 60 seconds according to that flag game app he has on his phone, which makes sense because he also has a bachelor's degree in geography (like Michael Jordan). He can also type over 100 words a minute on a good day.
