Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Feb 1877 to Mar 1881, Bailey missed 264 of 1,212 roll call votes, which is 21.8%. This is better than the median of 29.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1881. 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.
