Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1937 to Oct 1964, Sheppard missed 223 of 2,682 roll call votes, which is 8.3%. This is much worse than the median of 2.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1964. 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.
