Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1897 to Mar 1921, Penrose missed 1,884 of 3,399 roll call votes, which is 55.4%. This is much worse than the median of 25.8% among the lifetime records of senators 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.
