Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1981 to Oct 1992, Hatcher missed 773 of 5,381 roll call votes, which is 14.4%. This is much worse than the median of 4.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1992. 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.
