Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jul 1962 to Oct 1962, Bottum missed 60 of 137 roll call votes, which is 43.8%. This is much worse than the median of 9.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1962. 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.
