Missed Votes

From Dec 1821 to Mar 1827, Cassedy missed 37 of 300 roll call votes, which is 12.3%. This is on par with the median of 16.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1827. 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.
