Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1876 to Mar 1877, Abbott missed 89 of 166 roll call votes, which is 53.6%. This is much worse than the median of 26.2% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1877. 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.
