Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Feb 1862 to Jul 1862, Stark missed 95 of 367 roll call votes, which is 25.9%. This is on par with the median of 20.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jul 1862. 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.
