Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Feb 1798 to Jul 1798, Clayton missed 60 of 125 roll call votes, which is 48.0%. This is much worse than the median of 20.3% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jul 1798. 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.
