Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1826 to Mar 1827, Crump missed 29 of 103 roll call votes, which is 28.2%. This is much worse than 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.
