Voting Record

Missed Votes

From May 1911 to Mar 1917, Lea missed 709 of 1,374 roll call votes, which is 51.6%. This is much worse than the median of 32.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1917. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
