Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1933 to Jul 1956, Richards missed 110 of 2,193 roll call votes, which is 5.0%. This is much worse than the median of 2.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jul 1956. 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.
