Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1858 to Jun 1858, Henderson missed 192 of 250 roll call votes, which is 76.8%. This is much worse than the median of 25.7% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jun 1858. 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.
