Hendricks was Vice President of the United States (and President of the Senate) and was a Democratic. He served from 1885 to 1885.
He was previously a senator from Indiana as a Democrat from 1863 to 1869; the representative for Indiana’s 6th congressional district as a Democrat from 1853 to 1855; and the representative for Indiana’s 5th congressional district as a Democrat from 1851 to 1853.
From Mar 1863 to Mar 1869, Hendricks missed 386 of 1,736 roll call votes, which is 22.2%. This is on par with the median of 23.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1869. 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.
