Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1995 to Sep 1996, Chrysler missed 32 of 1,340 roll call votes, which is 2.4%. This is on par with the median of 2.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Sep 1996. 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.
