Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1955 to Oct 1964, Lankford missed 25 of 993 roll call votes, which is 2.5%. This is on par with the median of 2.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1964. 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.
