Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Feb 1878 to Mar 1881, Acklen missed 245 of 732 roll call votes, which is 33.5%. This is worse than the median of 27.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1881. 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.
