Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1965 to Oct 1972, Anderson missed 537 of 1,964 roll call votes, which is 27.3%. This is much worse than the median of 10.0% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1972. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
