Chipman was the representative for Vermont’s at-large district and was a Federalist. He served from 1815 to 1817.
From Dec 1815 to Jan 1817, Chipman missed 43 of 73 roll call votes, which is 58.9%. This is much worse than the median of 16.8% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jan 1817. 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.
