A member has the right to change his vote before the decision of the question has been finally and conclusively pronounced by the Chair.-Journal, 2, 20, pp. 357, 358. [But not afterwards.]

And it is not competent for a member to have the Journal amended, so as to bave the record of his vote changed, upon a representation that such vote, though recorded as given, was given under a misapprehension.—Journals, 2, 8, p. 167; 2, 27, p. 263.

A member has a right to have an erroneous record of his vote corrected after the announcement of the result of a vote.—Journal, 1, 38, pp. 586, 587.
