Missed Votes

From Dec 1799 to Mar 1801, Davenport missed 7 of 96 roll call votes, which is 7.3%. This is better than the median of 12.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1801. 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.
