Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jul 1986 to Oct 1986, Waldon missed 29 of 220 roll call votes, which is 13.2%. This is much worse than the median of 6.2% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1986. 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.
