Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1985 to Oct 1988, Boulter missed 461 of 1,829 roll call votes, which is 25.2%. This is much worse than the median of 5.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1988. 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.
