From Jan 1985 to Oct 1992, Miller missed 176 of 3,665 roll call votes, which is 4.8%. This is on par with the median of 4.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1992. 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.
