Missed Votes

From Jan 1973 to Mar 1980, Treen missed 827 of 4,674 roll call votes, which is 17.7%. This is much worse than the median of 8.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 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 and major life events.
