Rep. Augustus McCloskey
Former Representative for Texas’s 14th District

From Apr 1929 to Feb 1930, McCloskey missed 4 of 19 roll call votes, which is 21.1%. This is on par with the median of 17.8% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Feb 1930. 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.
