From Mar 1940 to Jan 1951, Lynch missed 73 of 1,091 roll call votes, which is 6.7%. This is much worse than the median of 3.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jan 1951. 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.
