Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Apr 1911 to Mar 1923, Towner missed 308 of 1,666 roll call votes, which is 18.5%. This is better than the median of 27.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1923. 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.
