Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Nov 1804 to Mar 1815, Giles missed 326 of 834 roll call votes, which is 39.1%. This is much worse than the median of 14.9% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1815. 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.
