Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Apr 1917 to Mar 1921, Welty missed 97 of 605 roll call votes, which is 16.0%. This is better than the median of 25.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1921. 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.
