Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1877 to Mar 1885, Lamar missed 1,330 of 2,568 roll call votes, which is 51.8%. This is much worse than the median of 32.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1885. 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.
