Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1945 to Dec 1970, Powell missed 797 of 2,827 roll call votes, which is 28.2%. This is much worse than the median of 8.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1970. 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.
