Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jul 1861 to Mar 1863, Crittenden missed 311 of 638 roll call votes, which is 48.7%. This is much worse than the median of 27.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1863. 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.
