From Dec 1839 to Mar 1843, James missed 365 of 1,725 roll call votes, which is 21.2%. This is better than the median of 26.0% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1843. 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.
