From Dec 1847 to Mar 1853, Clarke missed 265 of 1,201 roll call votes, which is 22.1%. This is on par with the median of 22.2% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1853. 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.
