Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1977 to Dec 1980, Stockman missed 427 of 2,816 roll call votes, which is 15.2%. This is much worse than the median of 8.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1980. 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.
