From Dec 1839 to Jul 1840, Anderson missed 514 of 628 roll call votes, which is 81.8%. This is much worse than the median of 30.0% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jul 1840. 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.
