Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1859 to Jan 1861, Jones missed 59 of 342 roll call votes, which is 17.3%. This is better than the median of 24.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jan 1861. 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.
