Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1891 to Aug 1892, McDonald missed 133 of 223 roll call votes, which is 59.6%. This is much worse than the median of 34.2% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Aug 1892. 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.
