Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Apr 1913 to Sep 1919, Thompson missed 159 of 786 roll call votes, which is 20.2%. This is on par with the median of 25.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Sep 1919. 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.
