Harrison was President of the United States and was a Whig. He served from 1841 to 1841.
He was previously a senator from Ohio as an Adams from 1825 to 1829; the representative for Ohio’s 1st congressional district as a Republican from 1817 to 1819; the representative for Ohio’s 1st congressional district as a Republican from 1815 to 1817; and the representative for Ohio as (unknown party) from 1799 to 1801.
From Dec 1825 to May 1828, Harrison missed 19 of 396 roll call votes, which is 4.8%. This is better than the median of 9.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in May 1828. 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.
