Missed Votes

From Feb 1838 to Jul 1838, Trotter missed 33 of 171 roll call votes, which is 19.3%. This is on par with the median of 19.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jul 1838. 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.
