Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1927 to Aug 1937, Black missed 224 of 1,399 roll call votes, which is 16.0%. This is on par with the median of 17.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Aug 1937. 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.
