Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1895 to Mar 1899, Connolly missed 86 of 345 roll call votes, which is 24.9%. This is better than the median of 34.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1899. 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.
