104 Correction of divisions
In case of confusion or error concerning the numbers reported, unless it can be otherwise corrected, the Senate shall proceed to another division.
Adopted: 19 August 1903 as SO 174
1989 revision: Old SO 182 renumbered as SO 104
In practice, occasional corrections of counting errors which do not affect the result, and which are usually caused by pairing errors, are made and certified by the tellers.
Divisions are taken again by leave when it is discovered that senators have been accidentally absent or some similar accident has caused a division to miscarry, on the principle that decisions of the Senate should not be made by misadventure. A Senator who misses a division is expected to make an explanation and apology to the Senate.
