Electronic votes

As a general rule, MEPs  vote by show of hands and the President of the sitting determines the majorities in each case.

In 1979, a new high tech system was put in place.  If the President decides that the result of a vote by show of hands is doubtful, a fresh vote shall be taken using the electronic voting system.
The individual vote cast by each MEP is recorded and published in an annex to the minutes.
