Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1993 to Dec 2006, Strickland missed 364 of 6,954 roll call votes, which is 5.2%. This is much worse than the median of 2.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 2006. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
