Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Aug 1972 to Oct 1972, Edwards missed 82 of 205 roll call votes, which is 40.0%. This is much worse than the median of 14.6% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 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.
