Johnson was President of the United States and was a Democratic. He served from 1963 to 1969.
He was previously Vice President of the United States (and President of the Senate) as a Democratic from 1961 to 1963; a senator from Texas as a Democrat from 1949 to 1960; and the representative for Texas’s 10th congressional district as a Democrat from 1937 to 1948.
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 and major life events.
