Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1913 to Mar 1925, Shields missed 1,246 of 2,754 roll call votes, which is 45.2%. This is much worse than the median of 26.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1925. 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.
