Rep. Jacob “Jake” LaTurner

Representative for Kansas’s 2nd District


LaTurner is the representative for Kansas’s 2nd congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. LaTurner is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, LaTurner voted for the exclusion of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania — states narrowly won by Democrats — from the count of Electoral College votes that determined the next President of the United States. Legislators voting to disenfranchise these states were fooled by, or actively participated in, the same lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol. Following the rejection of several cases before the Supreme Court, one legislator called for violence.

Missed Votes

From Jan 2021 to Jan 2021, LaTurner missed 1 of 17 roll call votes, which is 5.9%. This is much worse than the median of 2.0% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
