From Jan 1840 to Jul 1840, Betts missed 28 of 72 roll call votes, which is 38.9%. This is much worse than the median of 22.0% among the lifetime records of senators 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.
