Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1956 to Jul 1956, Laird missed 12 of 103 roll call votes, which is 11.7%. This is much worse than the median of 6.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jul 1956. 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.
