From Dec 1833 to Jun 1834, Dennis missed 12 of 71 roll call votes, which is 16.9%. This is on par with the median of 18.2% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jun 1834. 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.
