From Dec 1873 to Feb 1875, Hersey missed 332 of 367 roll call votes, which is 90.5%. This is much worse than the median of 22.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Feb 1875. 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.
