President Rutherford Hayes
Former President of the United States
Hayes was President of the United States and was a Republican. He served from 1877 to 1881.
He was previously the representative for Ohio’s 2nd congressional district as a Republican from 1865 to 1869.
From Dec 1865 to Nov 1867, Hayes missed 162 of 710 roll call votes, which is 22.8%. This is on par with the median of 26.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Nov 1867. 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.
