Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Apr 1917 to Nov 1942, Rankin missed 85 of 417 roll call votes, which is 20.4%. This is much worse than the median of 6.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Nov 1942. 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.
