Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Nov 1994 to Feb 2002, Largent missed 298 of 4,292 roll call votes, which is 6.9%. This is much worse than the median of 2.8% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Feb 2002. 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.
