Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1943 to Oct 1976, Madden missed 559 of 6,461 roll call votes, which is 8.7%. This is on par with the median of 8.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1976. 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.
