Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Feb 1849 to Mar 1851, Wales missed 72 of 529 roll call votes, which is 13.6%. This is better than the median of 19.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1851. 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.
