Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1824 to May 1830, McLean missed 69 of 243 roll call votes, which is 28.4%. This is much worse than the median of 12.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in May 1830. 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.
