From Jan 1975 to Oct 1976, Hayes missed 184 of 1,273 roll call votes, which is 14.5%. This is worse than the median of 8.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1976. 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.
