Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1951 to Jan 1975, Kluczynski missed 681 of 4,366 roll call votes, which is 15.6%. This is much worse than the median of 8.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jan 1975. 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.
