New mobile app for Commons vote results

The House of Commons has launched an app, available on Apple and Android, showing how MPs have voted following debates in the Chamber.

CommonsVotes takes advantage of the new system for recording divisions on tablet devices introduced in early 2016 to make the full breakdown of votes available quickly in an easy to use and analyse format.

Full division lists are already available online on the Hansard website but only after a delay of around 2-3 hours.

How does the app work?

The app sorts the division results by Aye vs Noes and within that by party, and users have the option of bookmarking individual MPs to view their voting record.

CommonsVotes joins a suite of procedural apps built by the Parliamentary Digital Service, including HousePapers which makes available digitally papers relating to Parliamentary business in both the House of Commons and House of Lords, including the Order Paper and copies of bills.

Download the app

The CommonsVotes app is available for free download in the Apple iTunes store and the Google Play Store for Android.
