Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1947 to Aug 1958, Patterson missed 21 of 1,108 roll call votes, which is 1.9%. This is on par with the median of 2.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Aug 1958. 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.
