Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1949 to Sep 1960, Johnson missed 140 of 1,985 roll call votes, which is 7.1%. This is on par with the median of 7.3% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Sep 1960. 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.
