Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1937 to Dec 1954, Gillette missed 377 of 1,891 roll call votes, which is 19.9%. This is much worse than the median of 6.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Dec 1954. 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.
