Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1863 to Jan 1865, Bowden missed 8 of 27 roll call votes, which is 29.6%. This is worse than the median of 18.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jan 1865. 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.
