Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1939 to Jul 1953, Taft missed 255 of 2,028 roll call votes, which is 12.6%. This is much worse than the median of 6.1% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jul 1953. 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.
