From Mar 1875 to May 1876, English missed 55 of 125 roll call votes, which is 44.0%. This is much worse than the median of 31.2% among the lifetime records of senators serving in May 1876. 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.
