Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1961 to Oct 1976, Shriver missed 305 of 4,786 roll call votes, which is 6.4%. This is better than the median of 8.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1976. 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.
