From Jan 2019 to Dec 2019, Wright missed 137 of 654 roll call votes, which is 20.9%. This is much worse than the median of 2.1% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving. 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.
