Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Sep 1969 to Nov 1970, Smith missed 249 of 519 roll call votes, which is 48.0%. This is much worse than the median of 14.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Nov 1970. 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.
