This extension changes colors in a CA legislator vote to show party affiliation
A must-have for those interested in California legislation and politics. The Color CA Votes extension identifies the political party of California state legislators named in vote lists, status pages, and bill text at leginfo.legislature.ca.gov, which covers all roll-call floor votes and committee votes in the state legislature going back to 1999. The extension colors each legislator's name by party for quick identification. For those with color blindness, parties are also identified in text. You can quickly see which party mostly voted yes, which mostly voted no, and who are the holdouts in each party who might be the ones you need to convince to help your community. Blue: Democratic Party Red: Republican Party Green: Green Party Gray: independent / no party preference Blue-Purple: Changed from Republican to Democratic during the term Red-Purple: Changed from Democratic to Republican during the term Blue-Gray: Changed from Democratic to independent during the term Red-Gray: Changed from Republican to independent during the term Note that the extension only works at leginfo.legislature.ca.gov. It does not work at the old legislative site, leginfo.ca.gov, so votes prior to 1999 are not available to be shown in color.

- (2017-07-11) Chris M: Compliments to the developer for considering colorblindness.
- (2017-07-11) RL Miller: Absolutely necessary for California political activists. So glad the developer has stepped in where the official website has provided incomplete information.
