Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1866 to Mar 1871, Cattell missed 903 of 1,684 roll call votes, which is 53.6%. This is much worse than the median of 27.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1871. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses, major life events, and running for higher office.
