Missed Votes

From Jan 1856 to Mar 1861, Bigler missed 351 of 1,757 roll call votes, which is 20.0%. This is on par with the median of 21.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1861. 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.
