Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1941 to Feb 1956, Kilgore missed 240 of 2,038 roll call votes, which is 11.8%. This is much worse than the median of 6.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Feb 1956. 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.
