Rep. Robert Martin
Former Representative for Maryland’s 8th District
Martin was the representative for Maryland’s 8th congressional district and was an Adams. He served from 1825 to 1827.
From Jan 1826 to Mar 1827, Martin missed 73 of 111 roll call votes, which is 65.8%. This is much worse than the median of 16.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1827. 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.
