Folger was the representative for North Carolina’s 5th congressional district and was a Democrat. He served from 1939 to 1942.
From Jan 1939 to Apr 1941, Folger missed 28 of 250 roll call votes, which is 11.2%. This is worse than the median of 6.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Apr 1941. 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.
