Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1867 to Oct 1877, Morton missed 1,315 of 3,132 roll call votes, which is 42.0%. This is much worse than the median of 30.7% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1877. 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.
