Rep. John Holley
Former Representative for New York’s 27th District
Holley was the representative for New York’s 27th congressional district and was a Whig. He served from 1847 to 1849.
From Dec 1847 to Feb 1849, Holley missed 81 of 86 roll call votes, which is 94.2%. This is much worse than the median of 24.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Feb 1849. 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.
