From Jan 1949 to Jul 1956, Lehman missed 18 of 1,256 roll call votes, which is 1.4%. This is better than the median of 6.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jul 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.
