Jackson was the representative for New York’s 6th congressional district and was a Democrat. He served from 1847 to 1849.
From Dec 1847 to Apr 1848, Jackson missed 77 of 120 roll call votes, which is 64.2%. This is much worse than the median of 24.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Apr 1848. 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.
|Time Period||Votes Eligible||Missed Votes||Percent||Percentile|
