Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1838 to Mar 1845, Foster missed 168 of 439 roll call votes, which is 38.3%. This is much worse than the median of 16.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1845. 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.
