From Jan 1937 to Dec 1942, Brown missed 128 of 632 roll call votes, which is 20.3%. This is on par with the median of 18.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Dec 1942. 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.
