From Jan 1937 to Aug 1972, Ellender missed 828 of 6,833 roll call votes, which is 12.1%. This is on par with the median of 14.6% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Aug 1972. 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.
