Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Feb 1978 to Oct 1978, Humphrey missed 122 of 494 roll call votes, which is 24.7%. This is much worse than the median of 12.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1978. 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.
