Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1843 to Mar 1845, Lyon missed 194 of 597 roll call votes, which is 32.5%. This is worse than the median of 23.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1845. 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.
