Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1870 to Mar 1871, Ayer missed 161 of 509 roll call votes, which is 31.6%. This is worse than the median of 25.2% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1871. 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.
