Missed Votes

From Oct 1965 to May 1972, Edwards missed 720 of 1,528 roll call votes, which is 47.1%. This is much worse than the median of 10.0% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in May 1972. 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.
