Voting Record

Missed Votes

From May 1854 to Feb 1855, Rockwell missed 34 of 250 roll call votes, which is 13.6%. This is better than the median of 25.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Feb 1855. 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.
