Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1881 to Mar 1887, Fair missed 1,426 of 1,875 roll call votes, which is 76.1%. This is much worse than the median of 30.2% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1887. 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.
