From Jan 1945 to Apr 1965, Johnston missed 220 of 3,487 roll call votes, which is 6.3%. This is better than the median of 11.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Apr 1965. 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.
