From Dec 1851 to Mar 1857, Allison missed 185 of 1,184 roll call votes, which is 15.6%. This is better than the median of 25.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1857. 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.
