Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1856 to Mar 1857, Bell missed 170 of 477 roll call votes, which is 35.6%. This is worse than the median of 25.7% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1857. 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.
