Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1971 to Dec 1974, Veysey missed 322 of 1,727 roll call votes, which is 18.6%. This is much worse than the median of 9.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1974. 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.
