Under House Rule 20, clause 3, the practice of “pairing” involves—under certain procedural circumstances—a Member who is absent during a vote on the House floor arranging with a Member on the opposite side of a specific question who is present during a vote to announce that the present Member is forming a “pair” with the absent Member, thus allowing the absent Member to have recorded how he would have voted had he been present.
