  2. (OOC: Noting that I do not feel comfortable counting Chris's vote given the sorting-out of this situation...)

  3. The Chair notes with bemusement that the nomination passes, with the Democratic caucus not showing up for their own nomination after the blow-up last time and all that sturm und drang.

  5. *bangs gavel* The gentleman is correct and the point is well taken. The vote was called at 1005 Eastern and Mr. Ward's vote was cast at 1008 Eastern, 48 hours and three minutes later. It does not count. I would remind members that we have a working precedent on a party no-showing. The result is as follows: Senate Vote Aye Nay Abstain Republicans 20 33 0 Democrats 0 0 47 Total 20 33 47 The Nays Have It House Vote Aye Nay Abstain Republicans 84 145 0 Democrats 0 0 206 Total 84 145 206 The Nays Have It

  7. In what way is the Chair upheld?
  8. I would like to move to amend as follows: (OOC: This is a technical fix, but I wound up in a spot on the Opioid Action Act because no Dems showed up to vote. This seems like the "cleanest" way to handle things. Technically it will usually result in a cloture failure outside of an otherwise-unanimous result while potentially, in the same situation, resulting in passage on a final vote. I also have no dog in the fight on how to handle this, but I would really like guidance on what I need to do.)
  9. OOC: I note the addition of Chris's vote but I will hold out for a formal ruling.
  10. (For posterity, here is the full result: Senate Vote Aye Nay Abstain Republicans 39 14 0 Democrats #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! Total #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! House Vote Aye Nay Abstain Republicans 170 59 0 Democrats #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! Total #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! )
  11. The Chair is going to need to consult with the Parliamentarian for a technical issue. (OOC: No Democrats cast a vote in the time granted and the rules don't say what to do in this case. The spreadsheet generates the following result: Senate Vote Aye Nay Abstain Republicans 39 14 0 Democrats #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! Total #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! #DIV/0! If it were a vote on cloture, I would declare a failure for want of 60 votes in favor. That is straightforward. I therefore request an administrative ruling and a formal declaration of how to handle either party no-showing on a vote. @SWMissourian @Bruce )
