Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Apr 1913 to Mar 1921, Sherman missed 695 of 1,763 roll call votes, which is 39.4%. This is much worse than the median of 25.8% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1921. 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.
