Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1849 to Aug 1852, Whitcomb missed 291 of 730 roll call votes, which is 39.9%. This is much worse than the median of 22.2% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Aug 1852. 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.
