Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1873 to Mar 1875, Bowen missed 27 of 474 roll call votes, which is 5.7%. This is better than the median of 22.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1875. 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.
