Burch was a senator from Virginia and was a Democrat. He served from 1946 to 1946.
He was previously the representative for Virginia’s 5th congressional district as a Democrat from 1935 to 1946; the representative for Virginia’s at-large district as a Democrat from 1933 to 1934; and the representative for Virginia’s 5th congressional district as a Democrat from 1931 to 1933.
From Mar 1945 to Aug 1946, Burch missed 34 of 116 roll call votes, which is 29.3%. This is much worse than the median of 13.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Aug 1946. 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.
