Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1937 to Dec 1942, Hughes missed 181 of 632 roll call votes, which is 28.6%. This is much worse than the median of 18.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Dec 1942. 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.
