From Dec 1833 to Mar 1843, Fillmore missed 517 of 2,526 roll call votes, which is 20.5%. This is better than the median of 26.0% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1843. 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.
