LWB Smart Vote

Smart Vote provides members with real time legislative information direct to their desks in addition to transmitting their votes. Clerks and secretaries benefit from an integrated system that avoids any re-keying of calendar items, ad-hoc motions or vote records while also controlling the chamber display boards. The chair interface displays speaking scripts and allows the chair to manage speaking requests from the same device.
