From Jul 1909 to Mar 1915, Thornton missed 226 of 1,021 roll call votes, which is 22.1%. This is better than the median of 30.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1915. 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.
