Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1951 to Sep 1960, Hennings missed 293 of 1,530 roll call votes, which is 19.2%. This is much worse than the median of 7.3% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Sep 1960. 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.
