S 565. Election Reform/Vote to Enable Federal Employees to Volunteer at Polls on Election Day.
senate Roll Call 33     Feb 14, 2002
Y = Conservative
N = Progressive
Winning Side:
Conservative

This amendment was part of the debate surrounding the bill to overhaul the election system in the wake of the 2000 presidential election. The amendment, proposed by Lieberman (D-CT), would have allowed federal employees to use paid administrative leave to volunteer as nonpartisan poll workers in federal elections. Supporters, including Progressives, believed it was a way to better staff polling places and improve the accuracy of the count. The amendment failed, 46-49, with no Republican voting in favor.
