Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Nov 1940 to Aug 1948, Ball missed 114 of 900 roll call votes, which is 12.7%. This is worse than the median of 9.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Aug 1948. 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.
