McCorkle was the representative for South Carolina’s 5th congressional district and was a Democrat. He served from 1915 to 1917.
From Jan 1917 to Mar 1917, McCorkle missed 26 of 43 roll call votes, which is 60.5%. This is much worse than the median of 24.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1917. 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.
