Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1878 to Mar 1881, Bailey missed 260 of 555 roll call votes, which is 46.8%. This is much worse than the median of 27.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1881. 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.
