Missed Votes

From Mar 1933 to Oct 1965, Byrd missed 703 of 4,968 roll call votes, which is 14.2%. This is worse than the median of 11.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1965. 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.
