Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1887 to Mar 1893, Blodgett missed 735 of 1,124 roll call votes, which is 65.4%. This is much worse than the median of 35.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1893. 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.
