Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1790 to Mar 1795, Hawkins missed 12 of 210 roll call votes, which is 5.7%. This is better than the median of 14.7% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1795. 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.
