Missed Votes

From Dec 1885 to Jul 1886, Cole missed 86 of 126 roll call votes, which is 68.3%. This is much worse than the median of 28.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jul 1886. 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.
