Online voting in the House of Lords

The House of Lords has put in place online voting in response to Covid-19.

The move to online voting ensures all members of the Lords can carry out the House's essential work examining legislation and government actions whether they are taking part in the chamber or online.

The first online votes took place on Monday 15 June. Members voted on changes to the Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Bill (division 1 and division 2) and regulations on access to abortions in Northern Ireland (division 3 and division 4).

All voting is through a new online hub, allowing members to take part in votes in Parliament or remotely.
