Howell was the representative for Pennsylvania’s 10th congressional district and was a Democrat. He served from 1903 to 1905.
From Nov 1903 to Feb 1904, Howell missed 8 of 19 roll call votes, which is 42.1%. This is much worse than the median of 29.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Feb 1904. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
