From Dec 1847 to Jan 1852, Foote missed 141 of 873 roll call votes, which is 16.2%. This is better than the median of 22.2% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jan 1852. 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.
