Voting Record

From Jan 1870 to Mar 1871, Howell missed 155 of 621 roll call votes, which is 25.0%. This is on par with the median of 27.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1871. 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.
