Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1957 to Oct 1972, Lennon missed 305 of 2,808 roll call votes, which is 10.9%. This is on par with the median of 10.0% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 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.
