Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1993 to Sep 1996, Fields missed 232 of 2,462 roll call votes, which is 9.4%. This is much worse than the median of 2.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Sep 1996. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

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