From Jan 1834 to Oct 1837, King missed 93 of 700 roll call votes, which is 13.3%. This is better than the median of 19.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1837. 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.
