Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1903 to Dec 1916, Clarke missed 1,083 of 1,784 roll call votes, which is 60.7%. This is much worse than the median of 32.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Dec 1916. 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.
