Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1933 to Aug 1955, Dingell missed 261 of 2,120 roll call votes, which is 12.3%. This is much worse than the median of 2.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Aug 1955. 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.
