Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1817 to Mar 1824, Edwards missed 97 of 310 roll call votes, which is 31.3%. This is much worse than the median of 10.7% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1824. 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.
