Which votes to record as VoteEvent, BillAction?

VoteEvents fall into three categories relative to how much is known about the vote:

  • roll call
  • counted vote without roll call
  • voice vote

Ideally, which of these should be recorded as a VoteEvent? All of them?
Ideally, which of these should be recorded as a BillAction? All of them?

all three should be BillAction generally. as for which should be VoteEvents, voice vote is the only iffy one IMO. Right note VoteEvent does require some number of votes so it doesn’t handle them well. I could see a case to be made for altering this though.
