Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1959 to Oct 1968, Gruening missed 632 of 2,477 roll call votes, which is 25.5%. This is much worse than the median of 13.6% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1968. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
