Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1844 to Mar 1849, Hannegan missed 300 of 1,032 roll call votes, which is 29.1%. This is much worse than the median of 19.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1849. 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.
