Every Member to Vote
25. Every member present when a question is put, or when his
name is called, shall vote unless he is immediately and
particularly interested therein, or the House excuses him. A
motion to excuse a member from voting must be made before the House
divides, or before the call of the yeas and nays is commenced, and
it shall be decided without debate, except that the member making
the motion may briefly state the reason therefor.
