Rep. James Douglas Martin
Former Representative for Alabama’s 7th District
Martin was the representative for Alabama’s 7th congressional district and was a Republican. He served from 1965 to 1966.
From Jan 1965 to Oct 1966, Martin missed 187 of 394 roll call votes, which is 47.5%. This is much worse than the median of 7.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1966. 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.
