Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1867 to Mar 1883, Cornell missed 633 of 1,066 roll call votes, which is 59.4%. This is much worse than the median of 28.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1883. 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.
