Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1885 to Apr 1893, Stanford missed 1,232 of 1,591 roll call votes, which is 77.4%. This is much worse than the median of 34.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Apr 1893. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
