From Jan 1866 to Mar 1869, Patterson missed 230 of 977 roll call votes, which is 23.5%. This is on par with the median of 23.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1869. 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.
