Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Nov 1991 to Nov 1994, Blackwell missed 186 of 1,666 roll call votes, which is 11.2%. This is much worse than the median of 3.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Nov 1994. 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.
