The Georgia General Assembly adjourned just two weeks ago after three months of fast-paced days full of voting on everything from special license plates, tax credits, the hospital bed tax extension, private sector incentives, abortion, hate crimes, monument protections, transit, and so much more.

The Georgia House of Representatives cast a whopping 392 votes over 40 days, excluding attendance votes.

But voting NO isn’t all that common in the Georgia House of Representatives. See which representatives voted NO the most and which hit the red button the least. (The list is first by number of NO votes and below that by alphabetical order. You can email AllOnGeorgia if you have specific questions about your representative.)

A few takeaways:

  • 50 state representatives voted NO 10 times or fewer.
  • 27 state representatives voted NO less than 2% of the time.
  • 2 state representatives voted NO less than 1% of the time.

NOTE: Many of the representatives who had 10 or fewer NO votes only voted NO on procedural votes like Motions to Reconsider or Motions to Adjourn in the middle of a legislative day, not on actual policy measures.
