Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1895 to Mar 1899, Odell missed 217 of 345 roll call votes, which is 62.9%. This is much worse than the median of 34.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1899. 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.
