Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1862 to Mar 1863, Flanders missed 31 of 81 roll call votes, which is 38.3%. This is worse than the median of 27.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1863. 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.
