Voting Record

Missed Votes

From May 1880 to Mar 1891, Brown missed 1,367 of 3,005 roll call votes, which is 45.5%. This is worse than the median of 35.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1891. 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.
