Missed Votes

From Mar 1851 to Mar 1857, Jones missed 553 of 1,353 roll call votes, which is 40.9%. This is much worse than the median of 27.3% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1857. 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.
