I prefer voting in Senate meetings with the new I-Clickers.

1May 19, 2012 7:21 PMIt makes things SO MUCH EASIER. Well worth whatever the expense was. Perhaps it should also be pointed out that voting via I-Clicker makes voting more anonymous than by a show of hands, thus making votes in the Senate closer to secret ballot votes. Maybe all our votes should be on the record (don't know if the I-Clicker program associates votes with individual Seantors: it might, given that we are supposed to use numbered clickers), but I appreciate not knowing how others are voting during the actual vote.
2May 14, 2012 1:02 PMThe iClickers were a great improvement. One of the frustrations with "head counts" was that it took several times to get a final number and these counts extended the meeting length. The iClickers have been fantastic in being accurate, in being anonymous, in determining the quorum and most importantly in speeding up the meetings.
3May 6, 2012 6:09 PMbecause the I clicker number is associate with the name of a senator I am wondering if ony one can see individual vote: how can you assure that this is impossible?
4May 3, 2012 3:01 PMKind of fun! Chair could perhaps save a bit of time by doing a 'dry run' vote at the start -- see the total number of clicks to be expected (e.g. yesterday 67), and then know to close the voting when that number comes in. (Allowing for a bit of plus/minus as people come and go).
