votación directa sobre la materia


Explanation:
votación directa sobre la terminación de la ley XXX

Es decir, expresando su voto con un <sí> o un <no> respecto a la cuestión planteada.

Veo la siguiente descripción en el Congressional Glossary:

An UP OR DOWN VOTE refers to a direct vote on the substance of an amendment or bill, sometimes referred to as a "clean vote." Members simply vote yea or nay on it.

Many votes dispose of a matter indirectly through another motion, e.g. to table, to recommit, to amend in the second degree.

Es decir, se establece una distinción entre votar directamente sobre un asunto o aprobarlo o desaprobarlo indirectamente al aceptar o rechazar otra propuesta.

Por si sirviera.

Saludos colegiales,

V
