Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1963 to Dec 1970, Burton missed 306 of 1,546 roll call votes, which is 19.8%. This is much worse than the median of 8.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1970. 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.
