Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1889 to Jan 1891, McCarthy missed 353 of 514 roll call votes, which is 68.7%. This is much worse than the median of 33.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jan 1891. 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.
