Missed Votes

From Apr 1981 to Oct 1986, Siljander missed 314 of 2,590 roll call votes, which is 12.1%. This is much worse than the median of 6.2% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1986. 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.
