Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1967 to Dec 1974, Rarick missed 525 of 2,648 roll call votes, which is 19.8%. This is much worse than the median of 9.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1974. 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.
