Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1862 to Mar 1865, Harding missed 497 of 844 roll call votes, which is 58.9%. This is much worse than the median of 18.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1865. 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.
