Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1937 to Aug 1954, Shafer missed 110 of 1,685 roll call votes, which is 6.5%. This is much worse than the median of 2.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Aug 1954. 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.
