From Jan 1969 to Dec 1970, McKneally missed 120 of 443 roll call votes, which is 27.1%. This is much worse than the median of 8.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1970. 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.
