Do you think that the Articles of Impeachment should be voted on anonymously by members of the House.?

What about if / when impeachment moves to the Senate for trial. Should votes be done anonymously?

    Votes in Congress should not be done anonymously since members of Congress should be acting in a witnessed manner. I do think many members would vote differently if their vote was anonymous, and it would surely be nice to not have the vast majority voting along strict party lines. but they need to be transparent, so they can be held accountable.

    No.  Elected representatives need to be on the record for all their actions as representatives.

    No....We live in a Republic and elect members of Congress to represent US and to vote for US - we all have the right to know what that vote is, therefore Congressional Votes are public information.

    No.

    We should know how each one voted.  Just like anything else they vote on.

    Yes to both and somewhere in the process should be a trial by jury to eliminate partisan politics. Or, trial by jury only.

      Sorry.  If that's the way you think it should be done, you'll have to amend the Constitution.

  • The only reason to vote anonymously is to hide it from their constituents.
