Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Dec 1895 to Mar 1897, Ellett missed 101 of 162 roll call votes, which is 62.3%. This is much worse than the median of 36.8% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1897. 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.
