From Jan 1949 to Oct 1966, Douglas missed 232 of 3,444 roll call votes, which is 6.7%. This is better than the median of 11.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Oct 1966. 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.
