Voting Record

Missed Votes

From May 1957 to Dec 1970, Yarborough missed 587 of 3,430 roll call votes, which is 17.1%. This is on par with the median of 14.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Dec 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, major life events, and running for higher office.
