Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1935 to Mar 1958, Dempsey missed 91 of 1,183 roll call votes, which is 7.7%. This is much worse than the median of 2.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1958. 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.
