Burr was Vice President of the United States (and President of the Senate) and was a Democratic-Republican. He served from 1801 to 1805.
He was previously a senator from New York as a Republican from 1791 to 1797.
From Dec 1791 to Mar 1797, Burr missed 52 of 217 roll call votes, which is 24.0%. This is worse than the median of 8.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1797. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
