Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1981 to Dec 1982, Napier missed 71 of 812 roll call votes, which is 8.7%. This is on par with the median of 7.8% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1982. 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.
