Missed Votes

From Jan 1953 to Oct 1976, Landrum missed 1,417 of 5,455 roll call votes, which is 26.0%. This is much 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 and major life events.
