Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1935 to Nov 1942, Mitchell missed 184 of 748 roll call votes, which is 24.6%. This is much worse than the median of 6.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Nov 1942. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
