Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Aug 1951 to Aug 1955, Buchanan missed 13 of 330 roll call votes, which is 3.9%. This is worse than the median of 2.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Aug 1955. 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.
