Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1805 to Mar 1813, Bayard missed 194 of 593 roll call votes, which is 32.7%. This is much worse than the median of 14.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1813. 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.
