Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Apr 1893 to Mar 1899, Smith missed 705 of 1,139 roll call votes, which is 61.9%. This is much worse than the median of 33.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1899. 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.
