From Jul 1789 to Mar 1805, Butler missed 204 of 447 roll call votes, which is 45.6%. This is much worse than the median of 10.8% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1805. 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.
