Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1944 to Aug 1958, Smith missed 294 of 2,063 roll call votes, which is 14.3%. This is much worse than the median of 6.6% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Aug 1958. 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.
