Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1863 to Mar 1865, Long missed 112 of 600 roll call votes, which is 18.7%. This is better than the median of 28.2% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1865. 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.
