Rep. Byron Donalds

Representative for Florida’s 19th District

Donalds is the representative for Florida’s 19th congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. Donalds is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, Donalds voted for the exclusion of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania — states narrowly won by Democrats — from the count of Electoral College votes that determined the next President of the United States. Legislators voting to disenfranchise these states were fooled by, or actively participated in, the same lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
