Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1959 to Oct 1965, Lindsay missed 141 of 852 roll call votes, which is 16.5%. This is much worse than the median of 7.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1965. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
