Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1943 to Aug 1948, Bushfield missed 142 of 712 roll call votes, which is 19.9%. This is much worse than the median of 9.0% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Aug 1948. 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.
