Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1937 to Sep 1961, Brooks missed 82 of 2,312 roll call votes, which is 3.5%. This is worse than the median of 2.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Sep 1961. 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.
