Howard was the representative for Kentucky’s 5th congressional district and was a Republican. He served from 1807 to 1811.
From Oct 1807 to May 1810, Howard missed 81 of 424 roll call votes, which is 19.1%. This is on par with the median of 19.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in May 1810. 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.
