Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1818 to May 1820, Mellen missed 16 of 133 roll call votes, which is 12.0%. This is on par with the median of 12.8% among the lifetime records of senators serving in May 1820. 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.
