Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1873 to Mar 1897, Gordon missed 1,378 of 2,749 roll call votes, which is 50.1%. This is much worse than the median of 35.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1897. 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.
