From Jan 1963 to Oct 1964, Mechem missed 54 of 534 roll call votes, which is 10.1%. This is on par with the median of 8.8% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1964. 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.
