Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1869 to Mar 1875, Brownlow missed 1,358 of 1,965 roll call votes, which is 69.1%. This is much worse than the median of 31.3% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1875. 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.
