Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1935 to Jan 1945, Truman missed 270 of 1,046 roll call votes, which is 25.8%. This is much worse than the median of 13.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jan 1945. 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.
