Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1797 to Mar 1825, Jackson missed 20 of 216 roll call votes, which is 9.3%. This is on par with the median of 10.7% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1825. 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.
