Rep. Aumua Amata Radewagen

Representative for American Samoa’s At-Large District

pronounced OW-moo-uh // uh-MAH-tuh


Radewagen is the representative from American Samoa and is a Republican. She has served since Jan 6, 2015. Radewagen is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

Because American Samoa is a territory of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate with limited voting privileges — Radewagen can currently vote in committee and in certain votes on the House floor, but not if their vote would be decisive. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.

Does 5 not sound like a lot? Very few bills are ever enacted — most legislators sponsor only a handful that are signed into law. But there are other legislative activities that we don’t track that are also important, including offering amendments, committee work and oversight of the other branches, and constituent services.

We consider a bill enacted if one of the following is true: a) it is enacted itself, b) it has a companion bill in the other chamber (as identified by Congress) which was enacted, or c) if at least about half of its provisions were incorporated into bills that were enacted (as determined by an automated text analysis, applicable beginning with bills in the 110th Congress).

Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 2019 to Jul 2022, Radewagen missed 256 of 327 roll call votes, which is 78.3%. This is much worse than the median of 2.0% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving. 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.
