Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1967 to Dec 1974, Price missed 324 of 2,648 roll call votes, which is 12.2%. This is on par with the median of 9.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1974. 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.
