Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1951 to Jul 1956, Thompson missed 1 of 477 roll call votes, which is 0.2%. This is better than the median of 2.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jul 1956. 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.
