Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1997 to Oct 1997, Capps missed 14 of 534 roll call votes, which is 2.6%. This is on par with the median of 2.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1997. 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.
