Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1993 to Dec 2004, Deutsch missed 390 of 7,080 roll call votes, which is 5.5%. This is worse than the median of 2.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 2004. 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.
